Vietnam Participants: Review Opportunity

A unique opportunity has presented itself since Heather at Age 30+ Books generously provided Serena with a Vietnam War book from Book Expo America.

The publicist for Semper Cool by Barry Fixler recently contacted us about providing each participant of the Vietnam War Reading Challenge with a copy to read and review this year for the challenge.

All you would need to do is send your snail mail address to us at warthroughgenerations AT gmail DOT com and she will get the book out to you.

Here’s a Good Reads Synopsis of the book:

Semper Cool is the wrenching, sometimes hilarious and always thought-provoking true story of a well-off Long Island teenager who enlists in the U.S. Marine Corps seeking adventure and his father’s approval and finds both, plus more danger than he ever could have imagined. Barry Fixler gets molded into a Marine at Paris Island and sent to Vietnam, where he is assigned to a company that would soon etch its place in Marine Corps lore. Fixler’s Echo Company defends a hill at Khe Sanh against overwhelming enemy numbers in a 77-day battle that is considered one of the greatest military victories in the history of modern warfare. With its vivid imagery, Semper Cool thrusts readers into a grunt s-eye view of the blood, guts, tears and laughter of war, as told by a Marine who returned home a man and a patriot. Be prepared to laugh and cry and ultimately thank God for the men and women willing to risk their lives for the freedoms that so many Americans enjoy.

If this book interests you, please email us with a snail mail address.
