There are hundreds, if not thousands, of memoirs written by the men and women who served in the Vietnam War. They are still being written by veterans today. To read them all would be a near impossible task. While I might present some in the future categorized by branch of service, or service year(s), what follows now is a handful of my favorites.
- Blood Trails: The Combat Diary of a Foot Soldier in Vietnam by Christopher Ronnau
- Dear Mom: A Sniper’s Vietnam by Joseph T. Ward
- Blood on the Risers: An Airborne Soldier’s Thirty-five Months in Vietnam by John Leppelman
- Combat Corpsman: The Vietnam Memoir of a Navy SEALs Medic by Greg McPartlin
- Two Souls Indivisible by James S. Hirsch – More of a biography than a memoir, I decided to include it as it is one of my all time favorites.
