Hostage of Paradox: A Qualmish Disclosure - John Rixey Moore

A personal story of one mans trials and tribulations in Vietnam.  The novel revolves around the author and only the author, no politics are mentioned, from the training ground to the deployment how he felt and what his fears were.

A hard hitting account of a soldier whose job is just to follow orders without question. The vivid and excellent descriptions of the living quarters and jungle environment paint a clear image in your mind of what the soldier is facing, making you feel that you are there in the background.

An honest and open account of how one man feels when danger is all around and how you cope with the death of fellow soldiers who you have put all your faith and trust in to protect the camp where you live.  An emotive and sincere story which will tug at your heart.

The truly remarkable thing about the novel is at no point are politics mentioned and is what this man had to do on a daily basis to survive.  It also shows when you need help from other sources the smallest sign or gesture has the biggest impact.  An excellent read for anyone who is interested in militia accounts and whats it is like to be at the forefront of a fighting campaign.
