From Dak To to the Tet Offensive, John Leppelman saw it all. In three tours of duty, he made combat jumps, spent months of fruitless effort looking for the enemy, watched as his budies died because of lousy leadership and lousy weapons. He saw the war as few others did, and lives to tell about the valor and sacrifice that outlived the dead.

Blood on The Risers

Written by Adam from New York, NY on October 22nd, 2007

  • Book Rating: 1/5

The author took an interesting topic like the Viet Nam War and turned it into a trip to the dentist(sometimes painful,mostly uninteresting). The author wondered why he survived-- I did too.

Good war story. Sickeningly real. Would you turn into the machine he did? A real life platoon.
