Out of stock
Call Sign Dracula provides an outstanding, valuable and worthy in-depth look into the life of a US Army Infantry soldier serving with the famed 1st Infantry Division (The Big Red One) in Vietnam. It is a genuine, firsthand account of a one-year tour that shows how a soldier grew and matured from an awkward, bewildered, inexperienced, eighteen-year-old country “bumpkin” from Kentucky to a tough, battle-hardened, fighting soldier.
You will laugh, cry, and stand in awe at the true-life experiences shared in this memoir. The awfulness of battle, fear beyond description, the sorrow and anguish of losing friends, extreme weariness, dealing with the scalding sun, torrential rain, cold, heat, humidity, insects, and the daily effort just to maintain sanity were struggles faced virtually every day. And yet, there were good times. There was the coming together to laugh, joke, and share stories from home. There were the warmth and compassion shown by men to each other in such an unreal environment. You will see where color, race, or where you were from had no bearing on the tight-knit group of young men that was formed from the necessity to survive. What a “bunch” they were!
... then the return to home and all the adjustments and struggles to once again fit into a world that was now strange and uncomfortable.
Call Sign Dracula is an excellent and genuine memoir of an infantry soldier in the Vietnam War.
