    • This is primarily a story about two half brothers from Oklahoma, along with a strong supporting cast, who find themselves, via separate paths, in Viet Nam in the 1960s. The author is a career soldier and served in Viet Nam. His writing, I believe, to be a slice of life during this war and I found it disturbing. Reading his work makes me doubt that the American military, or perhaps political, leadership had an overall goal in mind in this conflict. It seems we were reactive more times than proact [...]

    • The Hill is a story of two step-brothers from Oklahoma who both enlist in the Army for their own reasons and find themselves mired in a bloody conflict with the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) on Hill 875.

    • I absolutely loved this book! It was my work book, and it was so difficult not to read it at home. The battles and the relationships between the soldiers kept me enthralled through the entire thing. It is amazing the level of sacrifice our country has given to save the lives of others. I am a firm believer that we should always assist others in time of need no matter our personal cost. We are one world after all, not one country. We are one people.

    • A visceral, intense novel about the horrors of Vietnam. Scott pulls no punches and writes with a vividness that puts you in the scenes. This novel captures both the indefatigable spirit of our armed forces while also showing the harsh futility of being forced to capture nameless hills for the advancement of a political goal.
