Just started "Five Years to Freedom: The True Story of a Vietnam POW" by James Rowe. The Vietnam War isn't one of my regular interests, but I've heard nothing but great reviews about this book and am looking forward to reading it.

Written by a local guy about his experiences as a medic in VN....a gift from a coworker that lives next door to the author. I'm amazed how much detail this guy remembers about so many things....really gripping and remeniscent...
