The letters Joseph War, one of the elite Marine Scout Snipers, wrote home reveal a side of the Vietnam war seldom seen. Whether under nigthly mortar attack in An Hoa, with a Marine company in the bullet-scarred jungle, on secret missions to Laos, or on dangerous two-man hunter-kills, Ward lived the war in a way few men did. And he fought the enemy as few men did--up close and personal.

Funny and Human, in a tough place.

2nd time of have read this book. A good insight into practice and coping with the impossible, not just about the snipers. The human side of Jo makes me wonder how I would cope. Happy I do not really have to find out. His relationships with officers are interesting, including promotions. His humour is also welcome on such a serious topic.
