2 Jungle Rules

Author : Charles Henderson
Genre :  Military  Books  History  Politics & Current Events  United States 
Price :  $4.99
Release Date :  2006-11-07
Description :  <b>From the author of the military classics <i>Marine Sniper</i> and <i>Silent Warrior</i> comes the riveting tale of a dramatic military trial and a war within a war, where the fight is not for victory, but survival...<br /><br /></b>In Vietnam, there’s the way things are supposed to be done—and the way they actually get done. Playing by “Jungle Rules,” the U.S. military tries to keep control of whatever situation arises, often allowing convenience to outweigh justice. This is the battlefield Captain Terry O’Connor of the JAG Corps is stepping onto—and the battle is about to start with a murder.<br /><br />After a long day in the boonies, Private Celestine Anderson returned to base, only to come under fire from a group of racist white marines. He apparently snapped, and buried his field axe in the skull of one of his tormentors. The inexperienced O’Connor has been assigned to defend him in a trial that seems to begin as an open-and-shut case, but ends up pulling O’Connor into the heart of the Vietnam conflict, where bullets overrule books and death is the final judge. This recounting of a true story of brutality and justice continues Charles Henderson’s tradition of bringing readers into the heart of the American experience in Vietnam.
