Platoon is a story of a beleaguered Army platoon of soldiers that received "fresh meat" for the jungle grinder and is told through the eyes of one of the replacements. This story takes a lot of what happened over there with our young men fighting a war that, it seemed, nobody wanted. A lot of the issues with this platoon was in my opinion a conglomeration of the stories that have come out of "Nam," be the details were widespread throughout the soldiers or not the author took the liberty to ensure that these men provided a channeling of the stories through them. Good read and worth the time devoted to see how it was during that conflict, maybe not all at once as told in the story.… (mere)

Okay, that was excellent. At first I was under the impression that its prose was quite simplistic and the book was mainly of interest just for the historical setting, but as it turns out it was extremely well-written.
A good mix of fact and fiction. Opening one's eyes to what went on and managing to entertain without pulling punches - rather, if anything it twists the knife. I can only imagine it would have been a very difficult book to write.

One of the best Vietnam war novels I have read. Dale Dye,who served as a adviser on the movie Platoon, was a USMC sergeant during the battle for Hue. This semi fictionalized novels is undoubtedly based on his own experiences in the street fighting at Hue
