Major Thomas Harrison Smith is critically wounded while escaping from a POW camp deep in Laos, during the Vietnam War. Stablized by medical personnel in Vietnam and Japan, he is flown to Oahu, Hawaii for surgery and rehabilitation. Emaciated, dehydrated and nearly dead from constant torture, he meets and falls in love with Lt. Marla Bristol, a nurse therapist assigned to his case. During Major Smith's recovery, he and Lt. Bristol marry but the military wants Major Smith to do another tour of duty. If Major Smith does return to Vietnam, will he see his beloved Marla again? Who is Lt. Anthony Lambello, and what part does he play in whether Major Smith returns from NAM? Share their passion and share their love as they are torn between their call to duty and their desire for one another.
The NVA took each of us to begin their persuasion process. The Colonel strolled in and slammed the door. He shouted to the guards to hit me with their rifle butts. My offense was my stubborn will to resist and my defense was was my wits. The Colonel wanted me to call out to the others but I refused. The Colonel said, "It is better to cooperate than to die." He paused for a moment and said, "How many airplanes are at the bases and how many men are in the area?"

Having had two tours in Vietnam during the height of the conflict, I can directly relate to the frustrations characterized in "Unglorious War." I found this book to be a good read and could not put it down.

This is a story with very human characters filled with fears and ghosts from the past. This book is a fine mixture of factual, relevant work combined with raw emotions and great empathy. It is a book well worth reading.
Sgt. William Robb, Korean War Veteran, USMC
A must read for all vets.
