Today’s guest is Bill Taylor, author of On Full Automatic: Surviving 13 Months in Vietnam.

In the book, eighteen-year-old Marine recruit William V. Taylor Jr. and his brother Marines are assembled into a new reaction force that is immediately tested in the fire of a bloody conflict known as Operation Beaver Cage. After a traumatic first fight, they push through back-to-back operations with little time to rest or reflect. Those who survive will return home ensnared by everlasting memories of a real, but an entirely surreal nightmare. Now after more than fifty years of holding everything in, Taylor shares his experience in explicit and often horrific detail and with a reverent honor for those Marines who did not live to tell the tale.

Bill is a U.S. Marine Veteran and his new book has hit a chord with readers with nearly 5 stars on Amazon, 850 reviews, and 25 weeks straight as a #1 Amazon bestseller in three separate categories.
