Vietnam War Book Reviews

A Certain Brotherhood
A Certain Brotherhood
A Certain Brotherhood is Jimmie H. Butler's third novel. His first two highly successful books, The Iskra Incident and Red Lightening – Black Thunder (Dutton Books) received critical national acclaim while the new impressive small press release is likely to follow the same flight pattern. A Certain Brotherhood soars along with the best Vietnam air war fiction on film or in print. It's that good and that grabbing.
SEALs, UDT, Frogmen: Men Under Pressure
SEALs, UDT, Frogmen: Men Under Pressure
A couple of years ago, after reading his first book, THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE, I asked Darryl Young why he didn't write a book about his UDT tour, and if I remember correctly, he said that compared to his tour with SEAL Team One, his UDT tour had been too dull to merit a book. I grumbled a little about how I wanted to read something about frogmen actually doing some operational swimming, and he told me not to worry, he'd get a little of that in his next book.
Sergeant Major, U.S. Marines
Sergeant Major, U.S. Marines
Doc Norton, BTL Senior Editor, author of FORCE RECON DIARY 1969, FORCE RECON DIARY 1970 and ONE TOUGH MARINE, has done it again. It's getting a little embarrassing, the way I keep having to give rave reviews to friends and colleagues, but I'm not going to complain too much abut the embarrassment as long as I can continue to read such fine books. This time, Doc Norton has helped his old diving partner, retired Sergeant Major Maurice Jacques, turn out one of the finest military autobiographies you're ever likely to read.
Teammates: SEALs At War
Teammates: SEALs At War
Back when BTL first began, about the only books about Navy SEALs around was Darryl Young's The Element of Surprise. Since then, books about the SEALs have been coming out on what seems like a weekly schedule.
The Battle For Saigon: Tet 1968
The Battle For Saigon: Tet 1968
Keith Nolan has done it again! Without a doubt my favourite historian on the Vietnam War, William Keith Nolan, the author of The Magnificent Bastards, Sappers in the wire, Operation Buffalo, Into Cambodia and a number of other excellent works, has come up with a winner in The Battle For Saigon.
Six Silent Men - Book III
Six Silent Men - Book III
Book Three in the Six Silent Men series by authors Rey Martinez, Kenn Miller and Gary Linderer, is the final and fitting chapter to the legacy of the 101st Lurp / Rangers during the Vietnam War. It is a riveting tribute to some remarkable men who deserve their 15 minutes of fame in the spotlight and thanks to Linderer this latest spotlight will allow them to bask for a little longer.
Six Silent Men - Book II
Six Silent Men - Book II
Kenn Miller is to the military book genre what Oscar de La Hoya is to boxing. He's a seasoned fighter who can go the distance with the kind of style and flair that often leaves his competitors begrudgingly admiring his ability. Six Silent Men - Book Two comes at you straight and fast with enough quick jabs and interesting combinations to let you know you've been in a fight between chapters.

Six Silent Men
Because the 101st LRRP / Ranger unit from the Vietnam War is quite probably the most well documented special operations unit in the nations history, I have the suspicion that seconds before a long range patrol was inserted in to the jungles of South Vietnam the team leader charged his weapon and then gave everyone their final orders, "OKAY MEN, LISTEN UP AND LISTEN GOOD. THAT'S i BEFORE e EXCEPT AFTER c AND DON'T LET ME CATCH ANY OF YOU DANGLING YOUR PARTICIPLES!"
Covert Ops
Covert Ops
Little has been written of the U.S. secret war in Laos that paralleled the war in Vietnam. It was a different type conflict than Vietnam in that there were no American ground troops involved. CIA operators served as advisors to the Hong tribesman and Thai mercenaries who manned the front lines against the Pathet Lao guerrilla forces and their North Vietnamese allies.
Never Without Heroes
Never Without Heroes
There have been a number of authors who have had books published in the past dealing with Marine recon in the Vietnam War. Bruce Norton, Col. Alex Lee and Paul Young, just to name a few, have produced excellent works on their service within the Force Recon companies and Reconnaissance battalions.
