Review: SEMPER COOL by Barry Fixler

Impressions in Ink recently read and reviewed Semper Cool by Barry Fixler for the Vietnam War Reading Challenge.  Here’s an excerpt:

“Barry tells his story matter of factly, without any fanfare. He tells the readers of his amazement in what he witnessed in Vietnam during combat, his shock, and the choice to push that aside in order to finish his job.”

Musings of a Bookish Kitty also reviewed Semper Cool, check out what she had to say:

“The author has a great sense of humor, even about himself, which is one of the things I most liked about the book. His pride in his country and as a Marine is clear throughout the book. The book is written in a simple and rather plain manner, but that isn’t necessarily bad. As a reader, I got a real feel for who Barry Fixler was and what he was going through. He didn’t coat the truth with sugar or try to paint himself a hero–although he certainly is that in his own right.”
