This is unmissable, an amazing record of one persons Vietnam. An extremely intelligent and witty guy:

Radio 4 Saturday 20:00 The Archive Hour
Lance Corporal Baronowski's Vietnam

Lance Corporal Mike Baronowski was killed in action in Vietnam on 29 November 1966. He left behind an extraordinary legacy of recordings which he had sent home to family and friends, containing vivid and often comic reflections on his war experiences.

In this award-winning programme the story of his life and death is told through the tapes, which were left to collect dust on top of a cupboard for thirty-odd years, and from the differing perspectives of two Marine comrades and Baronowski's own brother and sister.
