Über diesen Titel:
Hemphill says this is a serious misinterpretation. He found the Vietnam combat infantrymen to be like American combat soldiers everywhere: some were very good, some not so good, but most took their jobs and service seriously and did the best they could with what they were given to do. While isolated incidents of indiscretion did occur and were voraciously reported in the media, the vast majority of frontline infantrymen were not habitual dopers, did not commit atrocities, did not hunt down their fellow soldiers, and were not psychotic killers. In contrast to many depictions of the Vietnam combat soldier, this book represents him as he really was, particularly during the time of Colonel Hemphill?s tour of duty as Bravo 6: profane, yes, but honorable in the performance of his duty.
Über den Autor: Robert Hemphill grew up in Georgia, graduating from the University of Georgia with a B.A. in political science in 1964. He served in the U. S. Army from 1964 to 1989, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel of Infantry, receiving a Silver Star (for Gallantry in Action), Bronze Stars with "Vs" (for Valor in Ground Combat--two awards), a Purple Heart (for Combat Wounds), and several other citations and awards. He served two years in Vietnam. Hemphill completed an M.A. in international relations at Johns Hopkins University in 1973. He is a much sought-after speaker at veterans? and other organizations, and has taught parttime at high school and college levels. Hemphill currently lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with his wife, Carol, on their horse farm.
