About the Book

In this War memoir, Eigen gives voice to his fellow veteran’s experiences of the Vietnam War that culminated in September of 1967 in the brutal battle (Siege) of Con Thien. This defining engagement marked the beginning of the TET offensive and battle of Khe Sanh. He fought with the famous Marine Infantry Battalions 3/26 and 2/9 of the Third Division. Through letters written home, blended with published, attributed media and real war experiences A Hellish Place of Angels provides an in-depth and riveting insight into war and documents a spiritual Journey that took a 13+ month tour of combat experience and more than a half century of living to begin to understand.
