Raw, Gritty, Wholly Believable

This is an excellent book. What it lacks in writing style it makes up for with brutal honesty and relentless truth-telling.Rad Miller's book is an excellent primary source, and a useful tool for someone who wants to learn the history of the Vietnam conflict. Bearing in mind that this is only one soldier's perspective, the book perfectly captures the spirit of the late sixties and early seventies, and goes beyond simply describing combat and training, but actually grapples with the issues of the war and chaos that reigned on the homefront. A must-read.

Very exciting.I was totally immersed int the book.

One thing can be said about this SEAL is that he sure has a sense of humor.Of course,war isnt pretty.Its sexy.But really,unlike these other books I've read,like LRRP's Ranger,boy ,does that book ramble on and on about technical issues and stuff I've never been familiar with.But Rad was able to express himself not in a robot fashion,just brain washed to kill,but the human side of being a commando.It was very exciting and intruiging.I was totally involved in it.I have read some true combat novels that just don't get to details about what was going on.Some didnt explain how it felt in combat in true real time detail.Rad Miller takes you there.I hope to get his autograph some day.

Very intense reading

Miller's re-cap of his life before / during his tour in Vietnam, as a Frog/SEAL is well written, and is very intense reading. His no B.S. approach to the theme that this book carries is incredible. Leave nothing out, and just tell it like it is in plain english, with a few four letter words included.


I wanted to know what it was like to be a SEAL in Vietnam. This book more than explained what it was like. Miller tells his life story from graduating high school to buying a tape-deck that lasted nearly 20 years. He goes through what BUD/S was like, SEAL Training, and getting his fair share of beatings. Oh, by the way, I hate to read, but I didn't put this book down. I highly recommend it.

Awesome -- a lesson in strength

Rad tells you, in my opinion, what its like to be a man; how to deal with things and not run away from them. I have read Blood on the Risers 3 times both of these books give me the same lesson in strength. These guys are heros in my opinion. True warriors in every sense of the word. It makes me proud to be American.
