An Army Legend’s Own Vietnam Story

There have been hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of books written on the Vietnam War; however, all of them fail to make the deep historic impact that “American Warrior” does. I think the biggest reason for this book rising so far above the rest is Brig. Gen. John C. “Doc” Bahnsen, Jr. who along with his writing partner Wess Roberts give us a astounding personal account of Doc’s two tours of duty in Vietnam (1965-66 & 1968-69).

Now the non-military public will also learn about this most remarkable man who is truly one of this nation’s greatest warriors. The book moves like a man on a mission “walking point!” The reader will have no trouble becoming absorbed in Doc’s combat experiences. If this were a novel no one would believe it! The man is one of those rare leaders much like General Patton was for WWII. He is bigger than life but ever so human.

The book tells it like was and the General holds little back. This is a bold accounting of a time long gone by when men who were great heroes were forgotten and ignored by our nation. Now they can read about one of those who honors the rest of us Vietnam Veterans!

The story is a must read! I personally recommend this book! Truly one of the best books ever written about the Vietnam War! They just do not come much better!
