Emotional and Suspenseful with Intense Combat Action

Youthful patriotism meets its match in this gritty novel about the harsh realities of the Vietnam War.

Of all his friends, Ivan is the only one looking forward to war. That's because Ivan has never backed down from a fight. He's protected his friends from bullies for years. And now, as war erupts in Vietnam, Ivan wants nothing more than to fight for his country, just as his father did in World War II. Enlisting in the United States Army, he is trained to be a sniper. And he's good at it — very good. But Vietnam isn't the war Ivan was expecting. Somehow the glory and heroism of his father's war stories just doesn't apply in the jungles. Now, for the first time, Ivan is forced to question what he's really fighting for...and whether Vietnam is a fight anyone can hope to win.
