BLOOD IN THE HILLS is a powerful tale, vivid, remarkably emotional,
and spellbinding. The sacrifices of the American fighting man
during the Vietnam War will long be remembered and has not gone
unnoticed. -- Chimp Robertson, author of POW/MIA: AMERICA'S MISSING
Honest. Gritty. Intense. BLOOD IN THE HILLS illuminates the raw experience that Marines endured at Khe Sanh in 1967. In the telling of Maras' story, we can come closer to understanding the sacrifice so many made on our behalf. -- Tom Hoffmann, Clinical Psychologist, U.S. Veterans Administration
