Muddy Jungle Rivers is a close-up look at life on a gunboat during 1968, the bloodiest year of the Vietnam War. It’s the story of a seven-man crew captained by a volatile pro-war enlisted man. Like Philip Caputo’s “A Rumor Of War,” this narrative takes the reader into frustration, rage, terror, death, betrayal, and the search for redemption.
Muddy Jungle Rivers has 29 chapters, maps, and photographs.
Today’s generation watch their peers returning from combat and cannot understand why their loved ones have changed after being blanched in the cauldron of war. In Muddy Jungle Rivers the reader will glimpse the genesis of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
