5.0 out of 5 stars, Gripping, by Rodney

One of the best books I have read on this subject.


4.0 out of 5 stars, Great detail, by L. Con

I bought this book because of its subject matter. It was definitely filled with vulgarity but it was true to the life that you lived or died in Nam.


5.0 out of 5 stars, Great, by Fred Mech (Smithfield, VA)

Great read, couldn't put it down until I finished it.


1.0 out of 5 stars, No historical significance and questionable accuracy, by brandy thomas

I have read numerous books regarding the Vietnam war as I am sure that most of you have. I have also experienced combat while serving this great nation. Although my experiences in the military and in combat are more recent than the Vietnam war and probably not nearly as interesting as those of Mr Mulldunes, I have to wonder if the editors have done him (and us) a disservice by changing Mr Mulldunes real experiences into something that they'd are not. The editors explains in the foreword that some of the names and experiences have been changed to basically make the book more interesting, but I think they went to far. The reader who studies military history will find nothing of historical significance in this book and will identify many of the "incidents" in this book as being a mirror image of incidents that they have read in previous novels. Sorry Mr Mulldunes, I to have been through "the s***" dealt with "the Pougs" and am still dealing with the long term effects of it, but I just find that this book was unbelievable to some extent and that is probably due to the "professors" alteration of your memories in an effort to sell more books.

My Comment:

Thank you for taking the time to read my book. I would like to state that no one altered my memories in order to sell more books. Every word and memory is mine and I didn't change some names and order of events to make my book more interesting. I did so in order to prevent further hurt to the memories of those lost, to those who are still struggling with issues from Vietnam, and their loved ones. David W. Mulldune


5.0 out of 5 stars, It was a great book. It was like I was really with him...,by Sandy

It was a great book. It was like I was really with him and could see Vietnam through his eyes.


5.0 out of 5 stars, No Bulls***, by K Daly

This came from a guy like so many of the grunts in Vietnam and he told it like it was for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars, the way it is, by A Forest Fan (USA)

It would be grammatically correct to say 'the way it was', but the memory and pain of Vietnam lingers on. The author puts you right there in the emotion and decision making that a young man goes through in war. The reader has the luxury of deciding how they would have reacted under similar circumstances. The Vietnam generation were the adults when I was a kid. Today, they are still my heroes. And people like David Mulldune are why.

Great read, that was some war...........


5.0 out of 5 stars, 13 months of hell, by R.D. Hale, Author,  "SkyCity: The Rise of an Orphan" (UK)

A brutally honest account of the Vietnam War that is both educational and mesmerizing to read. The writing is masterful, and the story Mulldune has to tell, will grip you on an emotional level. At times you will be upset by what you have read, but that is exactly the effect a book like this should have. The Mailman Went UA can best be summed up as 13 months of hell. The gritty language and bloody action means this is not a book for those with a weak stomach, but there are lighthearted moments. These moments are necessary to stop things becoming too harrowing, but they are also a great demonstration of the human spirit and how people can maintain a shred of humanity in an appalling environment. This is a great book.


5.0 out of 5 stars, Very raw and a great read. One thing I want to know, by Joshua M. Candlen

Very raw and a great read. One thing I want to know. They ambushed a Caucasian guy and killed him. They said it was the turncoat Marine. Does anyone know who that was? It's not often you bag American turncoats. This is the second time I have heard of Americans killing a deserter in Vietnam.


5.0 out of 5 stars, Great, by Mick Whelpley

A great read from cover to cover.


4.0 out of 5 stars, Marine Vietnam Vet, by Capt. Chas

Great book. From boot camp to Vietnam, the author captured all the reality of the Marine experience in the 60's and 70's. His experiences and observations were almost identical to my own. Spot on. Highly recommend this book for anyone wanting an authentic account of the experience we went through. Thanks to the author for his efforts...


4.0 out of 5 stars, A grunt's view of Vietnam, by shadow

Mulldune tells of his experiences and service in Vietnam from a perspective few writers would undertake. A Marine in the thick of the fighting he gives a unique look at war. I enjoyed the book, except for the language.
