The Boys of St. Joe's '65 in the Vietnam War

Category: Books

“A compelling true story of high school classmates, the Vietnam War, and the complexities of life thereafter, The Boys of St. Joe’s ’65 in the Vietnam War recounts the valor of these brave American heroes who, having worn our nation’s uniform with honor and dignity overseas, returned to a country mired by protests, mistreatment, and something far less than a hero’s welcome. If you haven’t thanked a Vietnam veteran for his or her service, you’ll want to do so after reading this book.” — SENATOR BOB DOLE

Taking Baghdad is the only history of Operation Iraqi Freedom written by a Marine who actually served in the war. This book is for the soldier as it is for the civilian, and for the historian as it is for the young who need to understand war. So much more than history, the audience will keep Taking Baghdad on their shelves because of its personality, a deep connection with the author as he takes you on a journey through the desert, history and combat, context and strategy, tactics and even poetry; it will leave you speechless.
