24. A Rumor of War- Philip Caputo "Novel" based on the author's experience in the Vietnam War. It is one of the definitive accounts, and I believe the first, having been published in 1977. That era and war fascinate me. Had it gone on another 2 or 3 years I would have been drafted. So I did some research on line to select the book I felt would be the best to read. It didn't disappoint. Captured the emotions of a young officer and the conditions, frustrations, and emotions of a Marine Infantry person in country. I recommend it highly.
