It was an experience to say the least, actually, like a lot of times on ...
... it. For the most part it was very honest and covered a broad spectrum of factors about the war and didn't hold back when it came to the more gory details. This was especially the case in the section on torture methods which were employed by the Americans and southern Vietnamese against north Vietnamese POWs, such as stripping naked the captives and forcing them to live in barbed wire 'tiger cages' that were too small for them to stand or even sit up in. There was other crazy stuff ...
