Review: SEMPER COOL by Barry Fixler

Tutu’s Two Cents recently read and reviewed Semper Cool by Barry Fixler for the challenge.  Here’s a snippet of her review:

“He gives us the raw, unvarnished, gory truth about young men at war. But he also gives us one of the most loving portraits of Marines I’ve ever read. It is not a book for the squeamish, but he does not dwell on the gore.  He focuses instead on the relationships and lifelong friendships the Corps builds. His engaging style, while earthy, shows why the sub-title is ‘fond’ memories of Vietnam. The experience is engraved in his mind and heart forever.”
