THE ODYSSEY OF ECHO COMPANY

“Although the characters in Doug Stanton’s newest book are ordinary Americans from unexceptional backgrounds, “Odyssey” is the right word to describe their harrowing experiences in the Vietnam War. There was a Homeric quality in their battle to survive the Tet Offensive, as well as in their homecoming, when they found themselves strangers in their own land. In this tale of men at war, Stanton once again proves himself to be both a superb journalist and a master storyteller.
