The Offering (book picture) 

The Offering is a first-hand, narrative account of Tom Carhart's year in Vietnam. (December, 1967 through December, 1968) As a young lieutenant fresh out of West Point, Tom joined the 101st Airborne Division, the Screaming Eagles. The Offering takes its reader through Tom's experience as an infantry platoon leader in the jungles of Vietnam, as commander of the Tiger Force -- a long range reconnaissance platoon (LRRP) -- as a participant in the CIA-backed Phoenix program, as an advisor to South Vietnamese troops, and as an American soldier whose French was good enough for him to gain access to the well-established French community in Saigon.
