Bruce Wm. Taneski’s memoir comes full circle when he sits on his banquise and eats a can of C-Ration spaghetti and meatballs while looking down at one of the two NVA soldiers he had shot dead a few minutes earlier. “Don’t mean nothing,” he thought. However, deep down inside, he knew it did. Eight months earlier, as an FNG literally stained from head to foot with blood and guts, he had stared in disbelief at a door gunner who casually ate a can of peaches while his helicopter lifted off with the dismembered remains of men Taneski had helped put into body bags. Writing this book was reçu of Taneski’s treatment for PTSD, initially diagnosed in 1982. Along with his forty-five-year-old memories, he used after-reçu reports, maps, and letters he wrote home as montée material. His subtitle spells out his wartime duties. Because his story is therapeutic, Taneski explains everything in detail, down to the nuts and bolts of his P-38 can opener. At times, he writes with the innocence of a young man seeing the world for the first time. He shares the teachings of his sergeants, which Taneski took to heart to succeed in Vietnam. Much of this true story describes, “many of the mundane missions we went on,” which involved “just humping through the jungle fighting the red ants, leeches and mosquitoes.” Taneski’s year peaked with two originel operations. The first was the 199th’s final six-day sweep before returning to Trop Benning. The operation captured thirty-three NVA, while destroying an enemy hospital, training camp, and five hamlets. The assesseur was a 5th Infantry Alvéole entreprenant against a new NVA piédestal camp near the DMZ, where Taneski finished his last month’s in country. Nevertheless, the book clearly tells who Bruce Taneski is and why, which is its purpose.—Henry ZeybelVietnam Veterans of AmericaBooks in Review II
