This book is different from any other book about war that I have read. Most of the books about war that I have read in the past are mainly fiction woven into nonfiction with a few exceptions, such as The Diary of Anne Frank.

I liked how the book was written time-wise, where he switched back and forth to give you a taste of one part of the story and then switch to the backdrop and forward again.

I also liked how he interjected lighter chapters like when he met Kathleen into the darker ones like having to take turns at night making sure the barracks didn't blow up from the sketchy furnace! Overall, it was a good read. It's not my usual style or subject to pick, but it's always nice to have a change of pace. I definitely have a better understanding of the state of our country during this time, and how different people chose to deal with it or ignore it. Apr 30, Brad rated it it was amazing. Loved this book.
There wasn't a lot of analysis of the politics of the war or combat strategy that you typically find in books like this, it was just the day to day of a bunch of kids trying to do their jobs and not get blown up. I loved the episodic format. Each short story works into the tapestry as a whole, but could also stand alone as a great story all by itself.
The cast of characters is unforgettable. Some stories are light-hearted and humorous, others are incredibly serious, but it's got a Loved this book. Some stories are light-hearted and humorous, others are incredibly serious, but it's got a great balance. I have friends who have spent time behind barbed wire in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, and it was really interesting to see how similar the experiences were between Ed Gaydos's experience in and now. I feel like I have a much better understanding of what the Vietnam War was like on a real personal level, and I think those are lessons and feelings that are still applicable to our world today.
May 16, Elizabeth rated it it was amazing. This is a book is set during the Vietnam War — but without a lot of gore, and very few political statements. It is a book that tells the story of one young man as he moves through his Vietnam experience — from being drafted and leaving home to marveling at bureaucracy at its best to returning home a different person. It also gives a real-life look at military life and what exactly that meant day-to-day for a normal, but educated and motivated, ex-priest from the mid-west.

In this outstanding book Gaydos puts you in the army, takes you through basic training, and sends you to Vietnam. Reading it was like hanging out and drinking beers with a friend who can really tell great stories; you sit, listen and don't want to leave. The book is a collection of stories.
Each one is brief - maybe 3 or so pages at the most and many shorter than that. But they follow each other in a narrative form almost in the manner of a diary. Finishing one leads the reader right into the ne In this outstanding book Gaydos puts you in the army, takes you through basic training, and sends you to Vietnam. Finishing one leads the reader right into the next one. Most have a humorous angle, but keep some Kleenex nearby because these are war stories - real and not always happy.
He and I are in pretty much the same demographic; I was drafted in but lucky enough not to be sent to the war. None of the combat vets I ran into would talk about their Vietnam experiences other than to complain about the army. This book presents combat intelligently and informatively, but without raw bitterness. Gaydos's affection and bonding with his fellow soldiers but not all was endearing, as was his poignant description of personal transformation from a seminarian on the way to becoming a Catholic priest into a soldier.
This book is excellent. May 20, Kristi rated it really liked it. I enjoyed reading this book.
I felt like I learned a little bit about what life was like during that war. It wasn't too heavy into the details but focused on a more personal level.
I did at times wish he'd gone a little more into depth about his own thoughts and feelings, rather than just telling the stories. I also wanted to know how the war affected him and how he adjusted back to life after returning from fighting, and I wish some of these were included.
The story is definitely a collection o I enjoyed reading this book. The story is definitely a collection of memories, so don't go into it expecting a cohesive, flowing story - it's choppy at times, but it works. I think a lot of people are going to be bugging their grandfathers and uncles to write books like this after they read it! Dec 11, Rita rated it really liked it. This is a powerful memoir written by a man who experienced all the misery, fear, and loneliness of all soldiers who fought in the Vietnam War. I was a college student at the time of the Vietnam War, and though I did not participate in the college campus protests I went to class!

Now I know, after reading this book, the hardships and terrible fears they endured, just as today's soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan are doing to protect us and our freedoms.
With a bit of humor and a lot of common sense, Gaydos takes the reader to Vietnam with him. A worthwhile read for all Americans! Jul 18, Scott rated it really liked it. I received this book through the Goodreads giveaway and found it hard to put down.

Seven in a Jeep is an honest and sincere memoir of the author's time in a seminary before leaving and joining the Army, his experiences getting through basic training and his tour of duty assigned to an artillery unit in Vietnam. I greatly appreciated that he doesn't make any effort to try to hide his true feelings in the situations and inject artificial bravado, whether he was dealing with the bureaucracy of Army I received this book through the Goodreads giveaway and found it hard to put down. I greatly appreciated that he doesn't make any effort to try to hide his true feelings in the situations and inject artificial bravado, whether he was dealing with the bureaucracy of Army leadership, scared and fearful of being hit, or coming to grips with the morality of his job as a soldier.
If you are a fan of Tim O'Brien, I highly recommend picking-up this book.

I have no doubt I'll get back to and finish this book, but I wanted to get a review out for those of you considering picking this one up.
Definitely recommended. Instead, Gaydos joined the Army after a recruiter told him he could serve for less than three years and put off induction for six months so he could finish his MA. I had no idea what a combat engineer did, but it seemed more glamorous and probably safer than infantry, artillery or tanks. Ed Gaydos.
Gaydos, instead, managed to get into Artillery Combat Leadership school at Sill, a six-month shake and bake operation. Gaydos thrived in the program, becoming the honor graduate of his class. He makes good use of a mountain of letters he wrote to his family and then-girlfriend Kathleen now his wife of forty-something years , as well as the photos he took in country, along with some research he did on his unit at the National Archives. Nelson DeMille is one great storyteller. And he has been for three decades.
