American Boys (book)

Title: American Boys

Author: Steven Philip Smith

Year: 1975

Steven Philip Smith served in 1966 in Vietnam. This book is his debut and is based on his experience. It is a story about four friends from different part of US and different environments. They got into the army because of different reasons and being boring in West Germany they volunteered to vietnam war where they were told to kill or die. This book is really realistic and shocking.

Sounds interesting. I just got done reading "Platoon Leader" for the second time. Great book. I really love Vietnam War books and have read many. My favorite is "Fallen Angels". Recently read "Matterhorn". Can't wait for the movie. I have a blog at warmoviebuff.blogspot Let's follow each other.
