BOOK REVIEW, by: Don Poss

PASS ME THE RICE, 2011, by Robert G. Kay, Lieutenant, Ret. US Navy (War-Stories.com Life Member #84)

Robert G. Kay's duties aboard Vietnamese Navy Junks patrolling the South China Sea and a Vietnamese River Assault Group, takes the reader along enemy infested rivers and coastal waters. Pass Me The Rice is a raw, raunchy, and riveting nothing is sacred living testament as to how it was.

Pass Me The Rice is in your face with the good, bad, funny, outrageous, absurd and genuine ugliness of combat. Robert Kay's characters are alive and you quickly care for them, and cant help hoping theyve survived the war. Experience the clash between negotiators and exterminators: Lazy ARVN and Americans, politicians, bureaucrats, and media, vs. the Warriors -- only the warriors engage the enemy, and kill them.

TET 68 erupts with infiltration by North Vietnamese Army Regulars and the Viet Cong National Liberation Front, and the ever present obnoxious politicians and dead journalists who thought they were in charge -- and TET '69 is still full speed ahead!

Ladies, Pass Me The Rice is your proof that men, warriors, really are from a testosterone-laden Mars. Firefights, crossfires, ambushes, sudden death and a brutal assault surprising an enemy concealed for ambush that leaves 150 KIA of the 9th NVA Regiment. Standby to cringe at the method used to encourage a POW to talk, and visualize the outcome if he doesnt in this page-turning first-hand saga.

Just when youre ready for an R&R after bloodletting KIAs, WIAs, MIAs, POWs, punji stakes, minefields, experience a dustoff medevac up close and personal, then evac to Japan and the USA. "Goodbye Vietnam it was a hell of a ride", and so was Pass Me The Rice.

Pass Me The Rice -- A four-star 500 Pages must read novel!
