Vietnam: A Soldier's Journal by Jack Durish is a personal memoir of the author's tour of duty in Vietnam during the war that tore America's heart in half. It is a tale of his adventures and misadventures while serving in the rear echelons of the 9th Infantry Division. This telling of the Vietnam story is not politically correct, just true.

    Pretty poor book by a very opinionated rear echelon member of the army, not a combat soldier. Don’t bother with this book. Read one by a proper combat soldier.

    It's a bit of a strange book. 'A soldier's journal' turns out to be a story told from a non-combat view. I expected it to be about the Vietnam war but was more about record keeping in a busy office. Covering sending letters to the families of soldiers killed in action to how to keep a typewriter working in high humidity. There is also a lot of repeating where the writer tells us something that he repeats later, sometimes using exactly the same text. If you're looking for a war story this isn't it. Try Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes

    Worth reading especially it occurred in my lifetime,I was born in 1944 One problem I have is that on page 205 he states Harold Wilson was British prime minister and appeased Hitler Problem being Harold Wilson was prime minister in the mid 60s so it raises the question if this simple fact is wrong what else is wrong .
