War Stories: An Enlisted Marine In Vietnam is a memoir of my two years. Stephen G. MacDonald has not only written a searingly intense memoir in WAR STORIES: AN ENLISTED MARINE IN VIETNAM but he has also managed to create a book that becomes a novel, surpassing the 'memoir' classification to become an Everyman's War Experience. That is an unexpected aspect of this compelling book and one that the author may not even acknowledge.
MacDonald had a good idea of what was coming for him when he dropped out of Tufts University as a sophomore and joined the Marines as his brother had done a few months earlier. His memoir carefully takes us through the training in March-April 1966-eight weeks compacted from the twelve weeks originally deemed necessary for Marine basic training.
