Library Journal Review

Vietnam was Benavidez's shooting war. His other ``wars'' were growing up Mexican-American in Texas and fighting the Pentagon bureaucracy to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Griffin tells his story with journalistic skill. The major portion of the book is devoted to Benavidez's two tours in Vietnam with the Special Forces, both ending with near-fatal wounds. Clearly depicted is his characterhumble, loyal, and persevering. The battle descriptions are superb, with little comment on the efficacy of the war itself. In the end, the devotion to duty is rewarded. For military and public libraries, especially those with Hispanic readers.Edward Gibson, Union Coll. Lib., Barbourville, Ky . (c) Copyright 2010.
