His only fear was not knowing if he had what it took to be a Marine officer––that is, until the day they sent him to Nam. An entitled second lieutenant, fresh out of training, lands in Vietnam full of wonder––an all consuming awe that quickly descends into dread at the deplorable conditions he, as an officer, has to endure. Speaking his mind to a superior officer only makes matters worse as he is ordered to take command of a company of misfit Marines––men who have no respect for their newest untested commander, and whom they unaffectionately nickname, Junior. He quickly realizes they’re not only fighting the external North Vietnamese Army but the internal racial divide amongst them. But there's no going to the rear and there's certainly no going home. The only choice they have is to go deeper into the valley of death, known as the A Shau. One thing is certain, death will come, but will it come from the enemy or within? Superbly vivid scenes and ultra-realistic portrayals give this book stunning authenticity and depth. THIRTY DAYS HAS SEPTEMBER is a riveting tale of impossible choices that flawlessly captures you in the moment and refuses to let go, even long after the final page is turned.
