Faced with a 1-A draft classification after graduation from college in the spring of 1968, the author decided to control his own destiny by volunteering for the draft. Soon he was given the one job he most wanted to avoid--infantryman. This is a foot soldier's story of twelve long and terrifying months in Vietnam. Assigned to the 25th Infantry Division, much of his time was spent fighting a guerrilla war along the Cambodian border during the ""Vietnamization"" program. Day-to-day platoon operations are revealed, along with the dread, fear, bafflement, loyalty, disillusionment and ecstasy of the men fighting and dying in the jungle. Shown, too is the lack of leadership, both military and political, that exacerbated the soldier's disenchantment.
