Four young brothers are caught up in the Viet Minhs struggle against the French. The composition of the revolt alters as the conflict is overshadowed by WWII and includes the Japanese, Chinese, British and Americans. Victory over France exposes divisions within the movement and a ruthless civil war begins. The great powers choose sides, as do the Ngo brothers.By 1967 a half million American and SEATO allies fight alongside the South Vietnamese Army. This story follows Lt Dole, SFC Max Vega and draftees Russo, Jones into the Riverine Brigades of the Me Kong Delta- Alex Russell in command of an Army tug, dragging ammunition barges up the torturous rivers, and Col. Ngo Viet, the VC Col. hardened by thirty years of constant war. Other characters, GIs, the Vietnamese crews of Russells tug, bar girls, and so many more bring the emotions and tragedies of the period to life. Paths of War will leave you with a new understanding of the word, veteran, and why even the most courageous soldiers can seldom relate to others their memories of war.Read it and be changed
