NIGHT FLARES: Six Tales of the Vietnam War
NIGHT FLARES: Six tales of the Vietnam War, is a frank and graphic combined hybrid fiction and fact look back at one of most painful eras in American political and military history.
Written by a two-tour combat photographer/journalist who served and witnessed the fighting in 1968-69, these six tales tell the highly personal stories of men who served, endured, survived, and paid a heavy price for their service to country.
Two unique features of this “hybrid” e-book short story collection are: “Prelude”, which spells out little-known, historical details about combat tactics and strategy in “A Soldier’s Tour of Duty”; and “Aftermath”, a detailed 25 page-plus chronology and timeline of the personalities, the politics, the leaders, and the battles that consumed South Vietnam between 1964 and 1975.
“If you want to know/understand what the Vietnam War was like, really like,” author Robert M. Pacholik said, “then read and savor every page of this book. It’s that good,” he added.
