After forty years of silence, a Vietnam veteran shares powerful personal memories of his year of combat.

This memoir of the Vietnam War is structured as a series of short vignettes that convey the emotional and physical landscape of the Vietnam War. It is a window into the war from the perspective of "the marine"-the author, who served in a rapid response assault force.

Carl Rudolph Small joined the Corps in 1969 at nineteen years old, coming from a small Vermont farming community. After boot camp and specialty training he landed in Da Nang as a private first class. With three battlefield promotions in eight months, he soon became a platoon sergeant.

Small did not talk of his experiences in Vietnam over the next forty years-but now, he has written this book so that veterans' families, including his own, can better understand what their loved ones experienced. It brings you inside the mind of the marine; you see what he sees, feel what he feels. You know him and where he comes from, what he is thinking, why he makes the decisions he needs to make.

Memories Unleashed is an assemblage of memories, consisting of stories that stand alone to create a whole greater than the sum of its parts. It addresses the warrior, the lives of innocent people caught up in the war, and the American and Vietnamese families impacted by those who fought.

"A fierce focused account of one man's year in the kind of close combat that was hard to talk about and hard to forget." -Tom Powers

Das Dateiformat ePUB ist sehr gut für Romane und Sachbücher geeignet - also für "fließenden" Text ohne komplexes Layout. Bei E-Readern oder Smartphones passt sich der Zeilen- und Seitenumbruch automatisch den kleinen Displays an. Mit Wasserzeichen-DRM wird hier ein "weicher" Kopierschutz verwendet. Daher ist technisch zwar alles möglich - sogar eine unzulässige Weitergabe. Aber an sichtbaren und unsichtbaren Stellen wird der Käufer des E-Books als Wasserzeichen hinterlegt, sodass im Falle eines Missbrauchs die Spur zurückverfolgt werden kann.
