Inhaltsangabe: Don't Mean Nuthin' tells the story of Frank Morgan, a young college grad raised on Army discipline who begins his career as a Phoenix Program assassin in Vietnam believing in his country. The book starts with Morgan on the Freedom Bird to 'Nam in 1969, sitting next to a grizzled grunt. It's Morgan's first hint of what may be in store. With less the month to go on his tour, Morgan leads a squad of South Vietnamese special forces in a bloody massacre and then mistakenly kills a beautiful innocent woman, Liem, in an old French plantation outside Can Tho. The attempted murder of Morgan by his CIA chief, a swashbuckling midget cowboy named Comer, who wears silver spurs on his boots, begins Morgan's metamorphosis into an avenging assassin, not for hire by the US war machine. Morgan teams with a Montagnard scout, Luong, and they visit an old comrade who has adopted a young Vietnamese boy. During their stay, the vil is attacked, leaving Morgan and Luong as the only guardians. While moving through the bush with the child and Luong, or at night watching the Southern Cross, one of Morgan's pastimes is to write letters he never mails to his parents and draft fictional articles for Stars and Stripes.

Don't Mean Nuthin' is filled with stories in the style of Tim O'Brien and Michael Herr. The book captures the setting of a country melting in napalm ooze and anecdotes grunts used to survive the insanity, all Don't Mean Nuthin'.

From the Author: Could be you're stuck in the events of the sixties like me and that prompted your stopping by. Or you're stuck in a Midwest snow storm  and want to sweat even if it comes through the pages of a book. Whatever, thanks and hello. My one published book, Don't Mean Nuthin' just  released December 12, 2008, is an attempt to capture the madness of a war despised at home by many and hated in-country by not a lot  fewer. My attempts at writing spring from days as a journalist, but more so because of the flowers I placed in policemen's rifle  barrels. I've tried to move on and failed miserably, continually teased back by dreams and memories. I hope you have enjoyed the journey  as much as I have.
