Patrol: An American Soldier in Vietnam

Patrol offers a look at war from the perspective of a young American soldier in a forest of Vietnam. He leads a patrol of nine men, waiting, searching for the enemy. His heart pounds, he trembles, and he fights back tears, wanting, hoping the enemy will be more afraid than he. As he crouches against a tree, he wonders if his enemy is crouching as well. When he finally comes face to face with the enemy, he is shocked to discover that the enemy soldier is as young a man as he. Winner for younger children, 2003.
