Beyond Survival by Gerald Coffee – Item of the Day — 5 Comments

  1. Anyone know if there have been any books written and translated into English language from the perspective of the Viet Cong, North Vietnamese army , maybe a diary kept by one of their soldiers ? I have Googled and have not been able to find anything.

    • I don’t know of any but I would certainly like to read something like that, frankly from just about every war we were ever in.

  2. Jack,

    Jerry spoke at a meeting I had attended some years back and relayed some of his experiences in the Navy. You mentioned in your description of this book that you would like to have him on your show, It would be worth your effort. He also speaks highly of Admiral Stockdale.

    A side sea-story on his carrier as a pilot in the Navy, He was the A7 pilot that took the photos of the missiles in Cuba.


    • I sent him several emails from his site I have sadly never heard back.
