This book should be a classic and the fact that it is out-of-print is a disgrace considering how much junk out there should never have been printed in the first place. However you can swing it, get this book. You will not be disapointed. This is a novel about Vietnam that teaches via showing much more than any history book or media report every could. Slow Walk in a Sad Rain is a classic war novel. I only wish McAfee would have written more.

John P. McAfee pulls the pin on a grenade and leaves it in our path through the jungles of Vietnam and Laos. We watch him do this. This anger, and the black humor that expresses it-"Slow Walk" is nothing more than a long string of wisecracks-is absolutely authentic. Still, it puts us off. This isn't the kind of war novel in which innocent youths are hardened into soldiers. These soldiers show no traces of their former lives. They are a gung-ho elite, a collection of macho poses with nothing human peeking through; their only regret seems to be that they aren't in a better war. "There was a time I liked being a soldier," Shotgun says. It was bloody, sure, but it meant something.
