Blood on the Risers: An Airborne Soldier's Thirty-five Months in Vietnam
From Dak To to the Tet Offensive, John Leppelman saw it all. In three tours of duty, he made combat jumps, spent months of fruitless effort looking for the enemy, watched as his budies died because of lousy leadership and lousy weapons. He saw the war as few others did, and lives to tell about the valor and sacrifice that outlived the dead.
From the Paperback edition.

How we could have won in VietnamUser Review - reorourke - Borders
There is still quite a lot to learn about and from the war in Vietnam, many lessons for us to take away from Leppelman's experiences. Vivid first person account of the war in Vietnam, quite memorable and engaging. I have recommended it to others before and they've loved it as much as I. Read full review
One of the best Vietnam Soldier book ever! I've read it at least 6 times and can still read it over and over like I've never read it before. One of my favorite books ever written. MUST READ!!!
