The book Rakkasans is a collection of narratives and personal history of one of the storied units of the Vietnam War. What sets this book apart from others is that the author was a company commander of Company C of the 3/187 101st abn div during Tet of 1968.

Mr. Bond not only researched the book, but also lived the stories and personal narratives. Being a member of the 187 during this time I had wondered what had happened to our unit while in combat. The life of an infantryman in combat is continues patrols and conflict and one can not make heads or tails of what is going on, but Bonds book brings light to some dark days of our unit from the members who were there.

The book Rakkasans is a must read for all who loves military history as told from ones who were there.
