VIETNAM AMBUSH: SOLDIER IN THE BUSH by Daniel Seidenberg Jr.
Vietnam Ambush tells the story of a young man answering the call of America to fight a war against the communist Vietnamese as a replacement with the 199th Light Infantry Brigade in 1968/69. It tells of his days in training, combat, recovering from injuries, and his return home amidst the antiwar fervor that had engulfed the USA at that time.
“This memoir will give the reader an invaluable insight into one’s participation in a war that today most Americans prefer to forget about.”
Historian, Vietnam War
“It is a well-written account of the war from the perspective of a soldier in the field. It should be read by every young American who thinks war might be glorious.”
Nuclear Age Peace Foundation
At age nineteen, Daniel Seidenberg Jr. received a draft notice. Thus began his journey through army life, infantry combat, and nearly fatal wounds that left him totally disabled. He was awarded the Purple Heart, Combat Infantry Badge, the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry and two Campaign (battle) Stars.
