A Reckoning for Kings

A Reckoning for Kings

(1987)
A Novel of the Tet Offensive
(The second book in the Shannon Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
From Library Journal: A kaleidoscopic treatment of the Vietnam War, this long novel maneuvers back and forth between the American viewpoint and, to a lesser extent, the Vietnamese. From October 1967 to January 1968 the military on both sides, as well as Vietnamese civilians, struggle to kill each other and/or survive. Major Shannon and General Sinclair and men of the first squad are highlighted, as are General Duan and his aide Lau. There are brief flashbacks to civilian life. The authors have created a frighteningly realistic overview of battle, punctuated with vignettes of individual triumph and failure. The climax is the Tet Offensive and bloody recapturing of a city. Three things finally emerge: the necessity for survival, the stupidity of war, and the suggestion that America might as well have been on the other side. Recommended.
