Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Sounds interesting, anybody had a look at it?

A gripping suspense novel depicting life and death in a Transportation Corps outpost on the edge of Saigon in 1968, the deadliest year of the war.

Meet Farnsworth -- disgruntled draftee, reluctant soldier and world-class slacker -- is he also a cold-blooded murderer? But if he didn't kill the sadistic Sergeant Bragg, who did?

See the other side of the Vietnam War -- draftees versus lifers, the Saigon black market, deteriorating race relations and the deadly 1968 race riot at Long Binh Jail.

And, the authors way to make it free:

While I had hoped that this book would take off and sell like wildfire, that dream has failed to materialize. So I've made the decision to make the entire book available to anyone who wants to read it. I've created a Creative Commons release that you can view on Scribd here. You can also download a copy of it from that location, or here. It's in PDF format, so if you download it, you'll need the free Adobe PDF reader to view it.

Naturally I'd like you to buy a copy as well -- nothing quite takes the place of an actual physical book -- but as I've always said, I'd rather be read than be rich.



You can read a copy, as the author promised, here: http://www.chairborneranger.com/ABadAttitude.pdf

That is what I  have come to understand.
