MY HUSBAND, JAMES ARRON THOMPSON WROTE THIS BOOK ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCES IN VIETNAM! HE PASSED AWAY BEFORE THE BOOK WAS PUBLISHED! HIS FRIEND, LEONARD CLAPES PUT ME IN TOUCH WITH HIS FRIEND, MICHAEL YOUNG WHO WAS ABLE TO GET JIM'S BOOK PUBLISHED THROUGH THE BOOKPATCH SELF PUBLISHING COMPANY! I READ JIM'S HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT BEFORE I SENT IT TO MICHAEL! IT IS A BOOK THAT DELVES DEEPLY INTO WHAT JIM EXPERIENCED ON THE BATTLEFIELD! IT WAS SUGGESTED TO ME TO TAKE OUT SOME OF THE COLORFUL LANGUAGE JIM USES, BUT THAT WOULD NOT BE TRUE TO JIM'S STORY!
