Walking Point: An Infantryman's Untold Story is a true account of the everyday life of an infantryman fighting in the jungles of Viet Nam.

This book explains how a young, idealistic, eighteen year old enlists in the army and volunteers for duty in Viet Nam. With other members of his company, Cunningham confronts the horror of battle, fighting hardcore North Vietnamese soldiers in the mountains west of Chu Lai.
