Regarding Matterhorne. An excellent presentation of the USMC during the period and really of American society in the late 60's.

I'm sure Hollywood with their agenda would screw the book up royally. And I cringe at the technical errors and cliches that would just have to happen.

But in the final measure I can't recommend the book enough. And for the apologists my battalion had an S-3 and Bn Co. just like those in the book.But given the rules of liabel and slander….:)

ochoin deach Inactive Member wonders...

The Green Berets was on TeeVee today and I watched it all the way through. Heckava movie. I only have one question: what war was it based on?

Enough of the irony, please name a better 'Nam movie than this turkey.

The Deer Hunter, for one.
