About the author:
Once upon a time, David Sherman enlisted in the US Marine Corps, and subsequently went to war. After serving as a fire team leader in a rifle company, he spent the rest of his tour in Vietnam in a combat outpost-type Combined Action Platoon. In a way, he never came home from the war. Following a too-short career as a sculptor (he studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the nation's premier fine art school), he began writing. To date, he is the author or co-author of 34 books (33 novels and one novella), nearly all about Marines at war; historical (Vietnam), future (science fiction), or other-worldly (fantasy). Most of his short writings-in anthologies, magazines and newspapers-are also about Marines at war.

A Nghu Day Dawns

The Night Fighters, book 5

Authored by David Sherman

Major Nghu, the fanatic North Vietnamese officer from book 1, is back. This time, he's got many more soldiers under his command, and uses different tactics, which he believes are guaranteed to defeat the Marines and Popular Forces of Combined Action Platoon Tango Niner. He starts by violating the Christmas truce - at a time when the Marines have American women visiting for Christmas dinner! Defeating the North Vietnamese is the toughest job Tango Niner has faced, especially once Major Nghu and his forces begin targeting the civilian population of the hamlets of Bun Hoa village. Step by step, Major Nghu believes he is achieving his ultimate goal of defeating the Marines and PFs of Tango Niner. Step by step, the Marines and PFs find ways to counter him and his forces, until they meet in the ultimate battle for control of the Song Du Ong river valley.
