       "Former infantry rifleman and platoon sergeant Gary DeRigne has created a novel set during the Vietnam War that is brutal, honest, heartrending, tragic, and hopeful in turns.  Told only as one who experienced the war firsthand can relay, One Young Soldier is a thoughtful and enduring work of literature that is as engaging to read as it is disturbing.   This sensitive and unforgettable first novel is a triumph of literary war fiction."

A book review.....

  " DeRigne has captured the human dimension of battle in Vietnam like no one else...  This novel is simply gripping! You will not be able to set it down...."

                         Col. J.B. Dodson, U.S. Army (Retired)

The young "grunts" of 3rd Platoon, Delta Company, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile), just before stepping off on an air assault operation against the North Vietnamese Army, September, 1969.

 A few days later.  Maybe this is where the term "snake-eater" came from.
