The soldiers in 1st Cav fought some of Vietnam's fiercest battles-
and Chaplain Newby was there right beside them.

For grunts in Vietnam, the war was a jungle hell of sudden death, endless suffering, and supreme courage. For Chaplain Newby, it was an honor to be chosen to share it with them. In enemy-held highlands and fetid jungles, Newby regularly accompanied patrols, company-sized missions, chopper strikes, and air rescues-sharing the men's dreams, their fears, and their dying moments.

Searing, brutally accurate, and dedicated to the truth, Claude Newby's account of brave men fighting a tragic war captures that time in all its horror and heroism. Newby doesn’t shrink from exposing the war’s darker side; his quiet description of the murderous events that came to be known as "the Mao incident" proves that justice can prevail. Ultimately, Newby's riveting stories reveal the tremendous valor and sacrifices of ordinary Americans facing constant danger, shattering losses, and an increasingly indifferent nation. His book is a shining tribute to those who fought, those who died, and those who came home to a country determined to forget them.
