Loon: A Marine Story

About Loon: A Marine Story

"Richly textured, Loon is a piercingly honest and beautifully written story of an infantry Marine. It neither glorifies nor mystifies and teaches us a great deal about courage, honor, and sacrifice. Loon is a powerful portrait of a period of American history."

"One rarely reads a book about Vietnam without hearing the sound of an ax grinding in the background. Loon is frank, eloquent, and objective. I thank Jack McLean for his military service and for rendering it so lucidly for those of us who weren’t there."
