Captain Doug Chamberlain was "living the dream" as a teacher and coach when he got drafted into the United States Army but instead enlisted into the Marine Corp. in the spring of 1965—which led to an experience he would remember and puzzle over for decades. Betrayed by the system he trusted to protect all those who carried out its missions, Chamberlain had to question his role in the US Marine Corp. In his touching and gripping memoir, Chamberlain leaves it to readers to develop their own opinions regarding a controversial event in the Viet Nam War as he tells the story from his perspective. Bury Him: A Memoir of the Viet Nam War takes readers through the heat of the Viet Nam War as American soldiers battle with ambushes, biting insects, snakes, substance abuse, and other serious circumstances.
With the skill of an expert storyteller, the patience of a teacher, and the empathy of a war survivor who experienced loss and death on the battlegrounds of the Viet Nam War, Captain Doug Chamberlain reminds us of the value of peace and caring about every single life. Bury Him contains an intricate collection of information for readers who wish to look into some questionable actions carried out by the US Marine Corp. during the war, including news reports, extracts from different books, and conversations with other concerned individuals. I was fully absorbed by the story as I imagined the joy of reaching home by radio, the fear of the soldiers as they dodged bullets and bombs, the thrill of flying aircraft, and other clearly described scenes. This powerful memoir will remain fresh in my mind for a good while, and the lessons are worth remembering for a lifetime. Don't miss it!
