First Lieutenant Sharon Lane was fatally wounded by fragments from a Russian-made 122mm rocket that was fired into the American base at Chu Lai in the early morning of June 8, 1969. She had been in-country only 51 days. Seven other Army nurses died in Vietnam during the war, but all as the result of accidents and other causes. He is a good writer who has great respect for his subject. The larger events of those times–the American political scene, the progress of the war, the geopolitical maneuverings–are deftly woven into the story of Lane’s middle-class American life, showing how an average individual can be swept up in the tide of history.

My first was purchased from Phillip Bigler approximately 15 years ago. The reason I purchased the book again is my first one got lost. The main reason I bought the book in the first place is I personally saw the "Lone Rocket" that killed Sharon Lane. I have seen this rocket several times since in my nightmares. It was at 0530 on Sunday Morning, June 8, 1969. as I laid in my bed about a mile from the hospital. A wonderful encapsulation of the life and death of Lieutenant Sharon Lane in Vietnam. I ready every word, twice. And, I am about to read it again.

Hostile Fire : The Life and Death of First Lieutenant Sharon Lane. I was very mistaken in some of my history and Philip does a wonderful job of explaining these events. The book seemed to struggle to talk about Sharon herself, possibly because Sharon wasn't in the service for that long of a period, and during that time she up to 84 hours a week in. She worked all the time. Sharon's Character however was portrayed very well, just lacked the in-depth coverage.

This is the only book / complete source of data that I could fine on 1LT Sharon Lane who is the only military female killed / died in Vietnam due to direct hostile actions while she was on duty at the US Army 312th Evacuation Hospital in Chu Lai, on June 8, 1969. Philip Bigler, the author, did a very good job on research and actual interviews with Lane's mother and many individuals who knew and worked with Lane. I highly recommend this book for individuals who are in nursing and other medical services, who are or were in any of the US military nursing corps, other medical corps and any military history buffs. The problem you might have is obtaining the book. The copyright is 1996. I did get lucky and was able to purchase a new never read copy directly from Amazon. It took a few weeks to receive the book.

To start with , this is my second copy of this book. My first was purchased from Phillip Bigler approximately 15 years ago. The reason I purchased the book again is my first one got lost. The main reason I bought the book in the first place is I personally saw the "Lone Rocket" that killed Sharon Lane. I have seen this rocket several times since in my nightmares. It was at 0530 on Sunday Morning , June 8, 1969. as I laid in my bed about a mile from the hospital. I used to take the officers from the 523rd Signal Battalion to play Volleyball with the Doctors and Nurses of the 312 Medical Evacuation Hospital. By coincidence, I have a picture of the same bunker on page 109 in the book , that is in front of Sharon's " Chu Lai Hilton" that I took myself during one of the games.

The statue of Sharon at Aultman Hospital has been relocated next to the hospital entrance . It has been modified with the names of all the casualties from Canton below her statue. There is also a bench erected to the side where you can sit and read the names.

A wonderful encapsulation of the life and death of Lieutenant Sharon Lane in Vietnam. I ready every word, twice. And, I am about to read it again. Recommended viewing of the internet site "Together We Served" accessed via Google then search Sharon Lane for her page, a wonderful summary by Gary L. McJimsey, a volunteer, whose work compliments the contents of the book extremely well. A great read about a great lady whose life was taken at a young age by enemy fire into her hospital ward in Chu Lai. Makes me tear up just to think about it.

I found the book an easy read, but had trouble getting a real feel for the horror of the war. I thought the book was a little short, perhaps because the author couldn't get any input from Sharon Lane, herself. Not as in-depth as I expected, but definitely worth reading if interested in women's roles in the Vietnam war.
