"One of the most hard-hitting of all the Vietnam novels." The Boston Herald.
In Vietnam, a new guy loses his rawness fast. Almost as fast as he can lose his life.
Gabriel Sauers of Two Squad is newly arrived in Nam, a graduate of basic training ill-prepared for the realities of war. In the coming months, he'll get his real training: incoming mortars and relentless enemy attacks will turn the green recruit into a death-hardened veteran . . . or kill him.
