    1. Night laagerOne of the best stories of the Vietnam conflict I've read in quite some time. The book was of a group of characters and their sharing of roughly 24 hours with the attendant series of events that shaped their lives forever. The ability to realize closure was the point of the book and it was well told.


    2. Details, details, and more detailsThis could have been a great book; however, the writer tried to cover every last detail. For me that was a significant distraction from a potentially great book.
