Quick Overview
An Englishman's terrifying journey to the dark heart of the Vietnam War. Tom " Bud" Abraham was one of very few Englishmen to serve in Vietnam. As an officer in the 1st Cavalry Division during 1967/8, he saw combat in some of the fiercest encounters of the war, which earned him the Silver Star, one of the highest American military awards. During the Tet Offensive, Tom was captured by the Vietcong and endured terrible suffering and torture. His daring escape was the beginning of a survival ordeal which would drag him down to the level of a primitive beast. After Vietnam, Tom married, became a father and started a successful business career back in England. It seemed he had forgotten the nightmare of the past. But more than thirty years later, a trivial encounter with the police set off a catastrophic chain of events which resulted in Tom losing everything -- family, home and self-respect. It became obvious that the psychological wounds he received in Vietnam were still festering. If he were to have any chance of a future, Tom would have to relive the past by confronting those traumatic yet deeply-buried memories of his Vietnam ordeal. His terrifying yet inspiring journey is the story of this book.

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside clean but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
