“For me – a veteran of the A Shau Valley – Chuck Newell’s account resonates with all combat warriors who fought in that valley of death. All warriors return with PTS – it’s how they confront, adapt and overcome the trauma of horrific combat that is underscored herein. I felt like I was beside Chuck through his Vietnam combat tour. Brought back memories – some good, some bad. It was Chuck’s care and concern for his troops, total dedication to his mission, demonstrated leadership and “can do” attitude that led him to confront and overcome the challenges of Leadership in mortal combat. Those who have never experienced it, will never understand. Those who have, totally understand what Chuck went through and salute him for beating the odds.”
