Product Description

Review from "the Florida Time-Union" of Jacksonville FL by C. F. Foster
Survivor's guilt and more for Vietnam vet
Gwain Redoubt, all-American boy, never really came back for the war. He should have died on a dusty road in Vietnam along with Sarge, LT and Gunner. But Gwain survived. A hero bearing baggage (that) would haunt him forever.

In addition to a load of survivor's guilt, Gwain's bag has a secret compartment; one whose horrible contents he finds need to be exposed before he has a chance at "Fightin' the Boogeyman."

This is not a fictionalized memoir. Jacksonville author Larry Bruce Barnes is not a Vietnam combat veteran. But with clear, insightful prose and a fast paced, readable narrative, he adroitly captures the plight of veterans of all our wars (and those who love them) in this story of one man's attempts to expunge the ghosts.

"Fightin' the Boogeyman" is a classic anti-war novel.
By CF Foster.
