Advance Praise for Jack McLean’s


"The battle at Loon erupts suddenly and sucks you in.  Like Jack McLean, you ask: what am I doing here?  The answer is: you joined the Marines and now it's time to fight for your life.  A gripping story of violence and dedication to survival."

Bing West, author of The Strongest Tribe

"LOON is a saga of an infantry Marine - the decision to enlist, the intensity of the recruit, mortal combat, and finally transition back to civilian life.  This beautifully written story is a must-read for all combat warriors, their families, and those interested in the turbulent times surrounding the Vietnam War."

Col H.C. "Barney" Barnum, USMC (Ret), Medal of Honor Recipient

“The unique tale of Jack McLean's journey from the Andover Academy to the worst combat of Vietnam to Harvard is skillfully written and will be among the classic books written about the Vietnam War. The book will make you laugh, cry and wonder why we cannot find better ways to resolve disputes among nations.”

—Jan Scruggs, Esq., Founder and President, Vietnam Veterans Memorial
