The War We Won
by L W Swartz
About the Book
At the age of twenty, L W Swartz enlisted in the United States Army. He was motivated by a desire to become a pilot and to serve and protect his country. Little did he know that he would be thrust into the middle of the Viet Nam War, a conflict condemned by the public and neglected by politicians. After saying goodbye to his family, unsure if he would ever see them again, L W set out for training and his eventual deployment. His experiences in the war are described in raw detail: from the few moments of humor and companionship to the all too frequent moments of sorrow that come from losing a fellow soldier. The War We Won sheds light on what the Viet Nam War was really like for the young men who fought in it and gave their lives for it.
