Book corner - Fields of Fire

Finished reading 'Fields of Fire' by former Secretary of the Navy and decorated Marine veteran James Webb. I read this book over the weekend and couldn't put it down. It's a fictional Vietnam war novel but I'm sure many of the stories were gleaned from the authors personal experience.

It's not a "pretty" reading. I found myself at times reading the same paragraph over and over again wishing it would change! The author leaves you hanging at the end, again, you know what to expect but a few chapters later you find out the real answer.

I would highly recommend this book. It's required reading for Marines as it is in the Commandants reading list.

So hit Amazon and find a .99 used copy, VB "'m looking at you!

Oh, started reading, 'Lost Soldiers" by...James Webb!
