Nine from the Ninth
NINE FROM THE NINTH
Thirty years after the Vietnam War, three soldiers collaborate with three short stories each to create Nine From The Ninth. They served with the Ninth Infantry Division in the Mekong Delta. Rangers Bob Wallace and Paul A. Newman depict moments of joy, friendship, and surprise mixed with terror, anger and hate while serving with Co. E, 75th Inf. (Rangers). Jack Bick photographed and wrote stories about the Rangers and Infantrymen while serving as a Public Information Officer. His stories were published in the Stars and Stripes and The Octofoil, a monthly publication on the Ninth Infantry Division.
This book will make you reevaluate Vietnam and the boys who served there. It will make you appreciate the conflict of cultures, rank, and war. A book to reread, ponder and keep.
