Uncles South China Sea Blue Nightmare is a moving poetic masterpiece by acclaimed author Lamont B Steptoe. It chronicles his life-changing war experience in Vietnam. The book begins with three letters to his mother, followed by two short poems, climaxing in the epic forty-one-page title poem. A former American soldier, Steptoes unique voice and perspective provides an alternative to those who question the legitimacy of war and those who feel entitled to their freedom without any sacrifice. But there is always a price to war, often more than in human life. Steptoe dealt with the irony of defending American foreign policy while facing racism from a white military establishment, representing a culture that treated him as less than equal. He faced this as he battled in the jungle. This is his story, that of a reluctant warrior, an impassionate observer with a pen.
