Angels On Our Shoulders is a book about a young (age18) combat infantryman's up-close and personal experiences in the Viet Nam war as it raged on in 1969-1970. The book is filled with personal accounts of combat fire-fights in the jungle and countless night ambush patrols that often ended up in very close-quarter shoot-outs in the darkness of open rice-paddies. It goes on to detail actual combat insertions of troops via helicopter that, on at least one occassion, resulted in a vicious combat fire-fight that began as the troops alit from the helicopters. In military "parlance", this was known as a "Hot LZ" The book also offers occassional insights into the extreme mental and physical toll that war takes on combat infantrymen.
