Set in Thailand during the Vietnam War, Tales of Ramasun chronicles the lives of ‘lingies’ and ‘ditty-boppers’ assigned to a signals intelligence listening post called Ramasun Station. M.H. Burton does a wonderful job of recreating the sights, sounds, and feel of the period, including the perennial conflict between the junior enlisted and those few officers assigned to the remote outpost. The adventures of the intrepid soldiers as they try to find humor in trying circumstances will leave you smiling. Those who have an interest in military intelligence and soldier stories from the Vietnam era will enjoy this book.
