    When the Vietnam War starts, a group of friends right out of high school have to sign up for the draft One of these guys is the author, Andrew Rafkin, and the other is Larry FitzGerald Andrew went off to the Navy, whereas Larry headed to the Army where he became a top secret assassin with exploits detailed in this novel The War took a brutal toll on Larry, and even when he is reunited with his friend Andrew many years later, he is still in bad shape But instead of being taken care of with his be [...]

    I really liked this book, than I d expected I would I have a prejudice that these types of novels are geared towards men, as I m generally not all interested in wars and fighting But I d read another book by Andrew Rafkin, Angel s Gate and thought it was amazing So I picked this up and wasn t disappointed He has a way of making the story relatable to almost anyone, and I found myself becoming emotionally invested in Mr FitzGerald s fate The author did such a great job of weaving in the facts w [...]

    There are really 2 stories happening in Reaper 6 by Andrew Rafkin One is the fighting and all the dirty business of being involved in a war on foreign soil Then there is the story on how those soldiers are welcomed back home The government shirks their duty at least in the case of Larry FitzGerald , and regular people aren t equipped to deal with the weirdness some of the vets bring Because many suffer from PTSD and TMI Traumatic brain injury , they are unable to or have great difficulty functio [...]

    Andrew Rafkin tells the untold stories of the Vietnam War from the perspective of Special Forces Sargent Larry Fitzgerald, an old high school buddy of the author s Right from the opening pages we are put in the shoes of young men who are faced with the burden of being forced to put their lives on the line and die for their country, even involuntarily Larry Fitzgerald is an ordinary man who faces extraordinary situations and is forever changed by them I thought the details and war stories were go [...]

    Reaper 6 by Andrew Rafkin tells the story of former special forces operative Larry FitzGerald and his crazy time in Vietnam, how his heroics were all but ignored, and how the United States military treats our returning war heroes worse than the undocumented immigrants that come to this country illegally It shines a real light on the humanity of those who fought for our country, and the shameful way they are treated upon their return I hope that people read this book and realize that something m [...]

    My cousin died in the Vietnam War Most likely it was friendly fire he than likely blew himself up with a grenade Of course my Aunt and Uncle were never officially told this, but it was suspected and then later confirmed by someone who was there.True stories like this make me realize just how much secrecy surrounded this particular war especially I wanted to write this review to thank the author for telling Larry s story My cousin wasn t lucky enough to come home, but now I am not sure who the l [...]

    Amazing Intense Well written and educational, Reaper 6 by Andrew Rafkin is a must read even for people who don t like these types of books The way Mr Rafkin writes it s like a friend is telling you a story and you just want to listen to whatever he is saying And then when the story is really interesting and based on true events, it makes it even all the much better I started reading this thinking I d only do a few chapters for the night and ended up reading over 60% in one sitting The story, alt [...]

    Recently, I have been researching for a history paper and a family friend told me about this book.I am so glad he did Before reading this I didn t know much about the Vietnam war, or ANY war Now I know one of the many true stories The untold story of Larry Fitzgerald I have never personally known anyone who was in the military It was making it very difficult to write a compelling paper After reading this, I feel like I am so much enlightened about the ravages of war and how it affects people Th [...]

    As someone who has never been a soldier or been to war myself, I have recently set out on a quest to find out what it would be like.This book gave me one man s first hand experience of being in the special forces, and I truly enjoyed every second of this book.When I read reviews I hate all the usual sayings real page turner must read etc etc but this book really is a page turner It will make you feel like you are on a super secret missions yourself and before you realize it you will be sitting u [...]

    If you are looking for a true story about Vietnam, but with a LOT of page turning action then this book is for you This novel will take you into the world of Larry Fitzgerald Innocent and very young who was turned into an assassin for the government I don t want to give to much away, but I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a very unique look into the Vietnam War from one soldiers prospective I know I certainly learned plenty Thanks so much to the author for taking the time to write thi [...]

    First off, I d like to thank Larry FitzGerald and Andrew Rafkin for their service to our country during the Vietnam War Although there are plenty of war novels on the market, this one really speaks from the heart of someone who was there and experienced things that most people only see on TV or in the movies It was enlightening to see through the eyes of a young man, innocent and then controlled by the government to be not only an assassin, but one that didn t exist A compelling, fast paced read [...]

    Let me first just say that I am a complete sucker for true stories I love the realness of knowing someone actually went through what I am reading.This is the true story of Larry Fitzgerald A survivor of a special units force from the Vietnam War I couldn t put this book down and I finished it in two days Much to the annoyance of my wife I might add After reading this I want to go find a local Veteran Hall and shake the hand of every person in the place.Then I shall find another book by this auth [...]

    Fast paced and exciting, you really feel like you are there in the war as the bullets whiz by your head and your dodging tripwires Some of the technical jargon and slang went over my head and I liked the glossary of terms that the author put in at the end It was very helpful I almost wish I knew it was there earlier or had read it first because it would have made certain parts clearer Overall a very good book Well edited and keeps you turning the pages This is the second book now I ve read from [...]

    There is really so much that happens in this book it s hard to sum up But it s unlike any military book I ve read before This is based on true events and many are, but there is one specific man who is telling his story, and it is one that hadn t yet been told There are many familiar elements involved, of course, but Andrew Rafkin delivers a unique spin in this well crafted docu fiction of the last remaining Special Forces Sargent Guaranteed win for military action war enthusiasts.
