This book is about America’s experiences in the Vietnam War with the point of view coming from Richie Perry. Richie, an 18-year-old African-American kid from Harlem, joins the army and is sent to Vietnam in 1967. There, he bonds with the other soldiers in his small squad and watches as some of them die. Richie wonders if he'll live through the year as he participates in the growing violence of the war.
Fallen Angels is a fantastic read, it is a very realistic depiction of life as a US solider. The grammar in the book isn't amazing but in my opinion it is a very important book in our history due to how controversial the war is.
'Hold It 'Til It Hurts,' by T. Geronimo Johnson because not only does it have to do with war it is about a young person in war and having to come home instead of leave.
