An epic war story of two American soldiers trapped in a web of corruption and death during Vietnam's shattering Tet Offensive. In stunning scenes of combat and intrigue, Payne and Willingham are forced into a covert CIA operation that hurls them into Vietnam's true heart of darkness-where body-count politics defines the essence of America's "dirty little war" and shifting loyalties, more than grenades and AK-47 fire, decide who lives and who dies. Year of the Monkey takes us to a place we have not seen before in a war we only thought we knew.
