“...His book recounts his agonized response to a direct order to 'bury' the remains of a fallen Marine in Vietnam...”

Book Description:

In this frank, engaging memoir, Captain Chamberlain chronicles the missions, personal courage and sacrifice of the Marines he was privileged to command; painfully recalls the unspeakable order he and his Marines were forced to obey; and the cover-up which followed. Nearly four decades later, Captain Chamberlain makes right what was wrong; brings closure to the family of a fallen and abandoned warrior; and attempts to put to rest the guilt which plagued his military career and life. Unlike most books on the Viet Nam War, this book is written at a tactical level by a Marine Company Commander who was there.

Meet the Author:

Doug Chamberlain, the grandson of homesteaders in eastern Wyoming and western Nebraska, grew up with the "country values" instilled in him in the rural environment of a very small community. Even though there were only 10 students in his high school graduating class, several of his classmates pursued careers, public service, and military service that took them to various locations around the world. His rural values and the foundational reinforcement of those values at the University of Wyoming and John Brown University proved to be tested in their entirety when he became a Marine Infantry Officer in the Viet Nam War. His life changing experiences in that war proved to haunt him during his search to solve a mystery that spanned 50 years...and Bury Him details the sordid facts and the horrible truth that had eluded him.

My Review: 

Bury Him: A Memoir of the Viet Nam War by Captain Doug Chamberlain was an interesting read. I enjoyed reading about the Captain’s life and his time serving in the Vietnam War. It is not an easy book to read. I had to put it down from time to time to think about what I had just read. It was kind of difficult to get through sometimes. The reason being the book dealt with some of the heavy issues within the pages. It deals with quite a bit of some events that I could never understand or imagine. Only those who lived through it would be able to know what the Captain had gone through during that time. He did not hold back and I admire how he was able to describe how he felt and what it was like.

I am giving Bury Him: A Memoir of the Viet Nam War four and a half stars. I recommend it. Especially, to readers who are veterans or know someone who endured such struggles and tragedies of war. I really believe it should be read be read by all because it was an important time in American History. I will be passing the copy I received for this review on to my step father, who is a Vietnam Veteran. I know he will be reluctant to open the pages at first, but will be glad he did once he starts reading it.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.


  1. Thank you so much for recommending this powerful memoir about an important time in American history.

  2. It sounds like a really interesting book. Thank you for sharing.
