review When We Walked Above the Clouds

characters × eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ H. Lee Barnes When We Walked Above the Clouds review ☆ 3 Blic during the civil war of 1965 and then at A 107 Tra Bong Vietnam There he eventually came to serve as the advisor to a Combat Recon Platoon which consisted chiefly of Montagnard irregulars Though “nothing extraordinary” as Barnes saw it his months of simply doing what the mission demanded make for sobering reading the mundane business of killing rats cleaning guns and building bunkers renders the intensity of patrols and attacks all the harrowing   More than anything Ba. When We Walked Above the Clouds is the story of H Lee Barnes s experiences that led to and included his time in the Green Beret American Special Forces during the Vietnam conflict He was stationed in one location for his time there If you are looking for exciting moments of bravery and battle you may be disappointed In fact he seems somewhat matter of fact when it comes to the battles he was a part of He does paint a vivid portrait of the stress and drudgery that alternatively preoccupy his time in camp He is a naive kid when he starts his service and it seems that he is truly born again hard when he leaves He has good commanders and bad commanders he uestions his role in the war and the war itself Some of it seems like hind sight but what do you expect from a work written many years after the eventI read the book in just two days and it move uickly with a certain flair that makes the chapters fly by He is the hero of the novel and those people he liked are strong characters and those he does not are very weak superficial almost some become even nameless The only thing that troubled me was the way death seemed so easy from the torturing of rats to the death of the Vietnamese strikers who were confederates of theirs they seemed to not matter His friends death caused him great pain otherwise the suffering of other things seemed insignificant That is war however and this tells us a lot about the thought process of a person placed under the duress of such eventsIf you are interested in the Vietnam conflict he offers some facts and insight that I did not know before Perhaps also a validating look back at a man s participation in one of the sore spots of American history
