New Book on the Vietnam War Just Released

Vietnam veteran, Art De Groot is pleased to announce the release of his new book, Bu Ku Kilo. This work outlines the author’s experiences during the Vietnam War.

Santa Ana, CA, February 20, 2013 --( Bu Ku Kilo provides a projected glimpse into the lives of army veterans as they fought and died in a controversial bloody conflict that took the lives of over a million Vietnamese people and 58,000 American soldiers. In the end, America left in disgrace.

Although the soldiers fought valiantly and destroyed tens of thousands of the Viet Cong (VC) and North Viet Nam Regulars (NVA), in the end, the United State's political will crumbled as Nixon just got the soldiers out. Many vets have said it was a sad home coming and even now 44 years later the scars are still there says the author.

“Read my story. You will be enlightened at the events that took place. It may help you understand or get over the cross you may still be carrying on your bleeding shoulders,” the author says.

Bu Ku Kilo is available in both print and ebook versions.
