The Real War
Fallen Angels is a story about Richie Perry. This very young man enlists in the military to go to Vietnam. Through this book Richie befriends many other soldiers and goes through much grief and sorrow as he learns that war isn't like how it is seen in the movies.
"My father used to call soldiers angel warriors, because usually they get boys to fight wars. Most of you aren't old enough to vote yet."
