This book is non stop action and is strait to the point unlike most 'Nam books around these days. Kugler is not afraid to put things bluntly, and stray from the norm.
I've read this book around 23 times and I have not got tired of it yet.
Dead Center by Ed Kugler is about a Marine who, while in Vietnam, goes from being a grunt, to being a Marine Corps sniper, and for a short period, a Force Recon sniper. This book tells of a man who helped create a sniper team independent of traviling with the regular troopers, and making a profound difference in the war. This book should be read by anyone who has ever even thought of picking up a 'Nam book.
