“...His book recounts his agonized response to a direct order to 'bury' the remains of a fallen Marine in Vietnam...”
—John E. Brown, III
Past president of JBU, and former AR State Senator




Book Description:

In this frank, engaging memoir, Captain Chamberlain chronicles the missions, personal courage and sacrifice of the Marines he was privileged to command; painfully recalls the unspeakable order he and his Marines were forced to obey; and the cover-up which followed. Nearly four decades later, Captain Chamberlain makes right what was wrong; brings closure to the family of a fallen and abandoned warrior; and attempts to put to rest the guilt which plagued his military career and life. Unlike most books on the Viet Nam War, this book is written at a tactical level by a Marine Company Commander who was there.

My Review

I am a fan of military books. Yet, I have read more books about WWI and WWII than most of the other wars. Therefore, my knowledge of the Viet Nam war is one that I am not familiar with. Captain Doug Chamberlain gives readers like me a good wealth of knowledge and insight into this war.
The chapters are short and thus makes this a fast read. Although, the other reason that I read this book so fast was because I did find this an interesting read. I did not feel like there was any political motives or thoughts interjected into this book. 

Captain Doug Chamberlain shares with readers, the good with the bad times and even the questionable ones. He does not shy away from anything. Which makes for a good read. This way I never felt like anything was missing or glossed over just to make a good book. Fans of military books will want to pick up a copy of this book to read for themselves. 


 
Meet the Author:

Doug Chamberlain, the grandson of homesteaders in eastern Wyoming and western Nebraska, grew up with the "country values" instilled in him in the rural environment of a very small community. Even though there were only 10 students in his high school graduating class, several of his classmates pursued careers, public service, and military service that took them to various locations around the world. His rural values and the foundational reinforcement of those values at the University of Wyoming and John Brown University proved to be tested in their entirety when he became a Marine Infantry Officer in the Viet Nam War. His life changing experiences in that war proved to haunt him during his search to solve a mystery that spanned 50 years...and Bury Him details the sordid facts and the horrible truth that had eluded him.
