It is difficult to exaggerate, or even adequately convey, the picaresque charm of Leaving Brogado. It has the jaunty, knowing air of True Grit and the breezy intelligence of Catch-22.

Synopsis

"Humor, wit, action and drama intertwine in another Marshall Harrison masterpiece.

From published author Marshall Harrison comes another moving book of valor, patriotism, and savoring life. In this posthumous release, Harrison documents the life of one of the most decorated enlisted men who served in the Vietnam War. Readers are bound to be fascinated with the life of Beauford T. Adams in the engrossing pages of Leaving Brogado. For someone who could have bragged about many things, Beauford T. Adams is astoundingly down to earth-honest yet witty. His name is well known in national, political, and financial circles. For the first time, Adams, reputed to be the power behind several national candidates and sitting representatives, speaks on his youth, primarily on events leading to his enlistment in the United States Marine Corps and his subsequent combat tour in Vietnam. Through vivid narration, readers will be taken to the battlefields of Vietnam and witness what it was like for ""a poor boy to go to a poor boy's war"". Leaving Brogado virtually takes readers into one man's comer of the world in 1967 and '68.
