I read Baker's "Nam: The Vietnam War in the Words of the Men and Women Who Fought There" and loved it. And "Cops" didn't disappoint either. I first read it a number of years ago and have recommended it highly ever since. Though the stories take place mostly throughout the sixties, seventies and eighties they stand the test of time. Highly recommend adding Mark Baker's book, COPS to your collection.
