Author Charles McNair, M.D.

Soldiers of a Foreign War: A Novel of Vietnam presents the war in all its complexity in War Zone C, the Tay Ninh province, the scene of nearly continuous combat during the winter of 1969-70. The novel follows two American infantry platoons, a three-man NVA combat cell, and Sp. Steve Aiken, a medic in the surgical hospital. 

NcNair, born in San Diego, enlisted at age 19 and by age 21 was assigned to the 45th Surgical Hospital in Tay Ninh. He gives a first-hand account of war’s “bottom line”.
