Summary:

"Many Beaucoup Magics is based on a true story. Far from your normal war story, it takes place on the Cambodian Border in the south central highlands of Viet Nam in the summer of 1968. It's as if Holden Caufield from 'The Catcher in the Rye' has gone to war haunted by a recurring bad dream about a specific day only to fall in love with the sweet innocent, almost stone-age tribal people he leads on jungle combat operations. These mountain men, considered "savages" by the Vietnamese, have no alphabet or written history, yet they began to unlock the mystery of his dream as the critical day draws near. This may be one of the most unusal stories set on a war stage ever told". --Back cover.
