My book starts off at the Place Puginier with Ho Chi Minh speaking to the public. What is the setting of your first chapter?
The first chapter of my book was really about his early life in South Georgia and getting into West Point to prepare for Vietnam
The first chapter went on to talk about Vietnam history
And it elaborated on a lot of the past leaders and public leaders in Vietnam
It also described all the different training he went through across the country and other countries such as Germany to prepare for Vietnam.
Mine also goes into some detail about the training
So far the author of my book believes that we could have prevented the whole war if Americans understood the history of Vietnam
My guy arrived in Vietnam in about October of 1965 and was stationed at the Tan Son Nhut Air Base.
My book doesn't have one specific character. It's basically the whole war from start to finish with different stories and information from different people/sources
So far so you think that the author of your book is biased in any way?
I mean he's biased in the way that he fought on the American side so he sees the opposing side as the enemy.
The author of my book seems just a little biased towards the Americans
At some parts he basically blames Americans because they don't know Vietnam history
So is he biased for or against the Americans becuase you said he blames Americans but you also said he was biased towards Americans so does that he is biased for the Vietnamese?
My book goes into a lot of detail about The Battle of Ap Bac
In the chapter about The Battle of Ap Bac the author tells about what weapons were used
My author also describes what weapons he uses.
A few times during my book it goes to the POV of journalists at the time
That's cool so it also has a memoir/autobiography feel to it at certain points in it.
Each chapter of my book is a different year with important events that took place in that year
Oh ok, in mine he describes his experiences in Vietnam.
The guy in my book was sent to first be a transport aircraft in a combat support role but when he arrived on base he asked the Honour if he could fly gunships and he agreed.
My book describes what the gunships were like on the inside/outside
The reason he wanted to fly gunships is to get certified to fly a UH-1 Iroquois series helicopter.
The author in my book has the nickname "Doc" so I'm going to start saying that.
The author of my book was summa cum laude in history from Harvard
Doc was in Vietnam for a period of time but finished his first campaign and returned to Georgia.
Basically my whole book took place in Vietnam or surrounding countries
When he was back in the States, he was stationed in DC in the Pentagon.
My book mentions DC a lot
It also mentions the president at the time
And the 2 leaders relationship
He also spent some time at the Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah Georgia.
He returned back to Vietnam on September 14, 1968.
My book ends in 1965
He continued to fly attack helicopters.
He still flies the AH-1G Cobra.
He calls the North Vietnamese Armies the NVA.
He spent much of his time on the Bien Hoa air base.
He also spent time at the Blackhorse Base Camp.
Much of Vietnam in the places Doc is is covered in jungle or covered in elephant grass.
Most of the battles he saw were in War Zone D.
War Zone D was also known as the Iron Triangle.
It's a 120 square mile area where much fighting took place.
He visited the Ba Da Secret Zone.
The Ba Da Secret Zone is a free-fire zone where any and all people found in it could be shot on site.
He spends much of his time on the Bien Hoa Air Base on the Alpha pad.
He also took a small vacation to Hong Kong.
He also went to Bangkok, Thailand.
The ground troops would send out colored smoke to alert aircraft instead of clear becuase both sides used clear and they didn't want it to be an ambush.
The reason for this is they did many ambushes using regular smoke on the people flying helicopters.
He went to the Heart-Shaped Woods in the Bing Duong Province.
But after this he went back to the War Zone D.
He spent a lot of time in battle at the Tan Uyen River in War Zone D.
He also went to the K4 Woods north of Lai Khe.
Lai Khe was a military base in South Vietnam.
Bien Hoa Air Base was in War Zone D.
The Blackhorse headquarters was at the Bien Hoa Air Base.
He spent time at the Air Calvary Troop headquarters at the Bien Hoa Air Base.
My book doesn't mention that specific Air Base, but it does mention a few
Many different bases were mentioned in my book
He was in many different squadrons.
He made it all the way to Brigadier General.
The climate in Vietnam was really rainy.
And humid and hot.
My book didn't give much detail on the climate, just that it was raining at times
Overall I really enjoyed my book he was very detailed in all his experiences in Vietnam.
I also enjoyed my book. It gave me a lot of good information on the war overall.
My book doesn't give a lot of description of setting
It's mainly different provinces, countries, and landmarks/ monuments
My book really only goes into detail about one battle
The Battle of Ap Bac
A lot of different countries were mentioned in my book
Examples: Russia, United States, Korea,
There were a lot of villages mentioned in my book
My book talks a lot about the communist parties
Champagne and fondue were party favorites in my book
there was a river that led to the Bien Hoa air base
