    A great factual book that reads likes a novel and covers a not as well known aspect of the war

    An enjoyable book on an aspect of Vietnam that I had the least knowledge. The Riverine war has certainly interested me after cutting my teeth in the '60s with both "PT-109" and "McHale's Navy." This book even had an officer who led "MacLeod's Navy." The nature of Vietnam was certainly conducive to this type of operation and who better to perform that task than the US Navy?

    This book reads like a novel, but it isn't: it's the history of men in a war doing a little known and less understood duty in the rivers of southern Viet Nam.

    A interesting, short, readable, history of "brown water" U.S. Naval operations in the Vietnam War. I found the book tended to jump between first-person narratives, but also gained some insight into the neglected but important role of naval operations in Vietnam. I also realized how so many other books I've read on the Vietnam War, tend to gloss-over the navy's contributions in this regard. A book I found beneficial to my knowledge of the Vietnam War, but hardly highly essential.

    Jumps from subject to subject, or rather boat to boat with irritating frequency, neglecting any real human aspect of the riverine forces.
