Product Description

FROM RAW RECRUIT TO COMBAT HERO In July 1965, Pfc. Craig Roberts crossed the Da Nang River with the 9th Marines - into the heart of a jungle alive with savage Viet Cong. Eight months later his unit would be called. THE WALKING DEAD In constant danger, they flushed the enemy from tunnels and rat traps; defused lethal mines, punji pits, and trip wires; and scored countless hits in ambushes, sweeps, and all-out firefights. From booby-trapped villages to battles at Cam Ne, Le Son, the Phong Le Bridge, and in "Operation Starlight," they shared incredible risks, comradeship, and pride. Now Roberts tells the gripping tale of their war. Shot down and rescued, wounded in action, Roberts survived against fantastic odds and served as an automatic rifleman, recon leader, sniper, and as an advisor to a Combined Action Company of ARVN Rangers. Transformed from an ordinary nineteen-year-old into a deadly killer, he was the recipient of ten decorations, including two Purple Hearts, the Vietnam Cross of Gallantry, and a Combat Action Ribbon. His memoir is a story of extraordinary challenges met for honor, freedom, and the Corps.

This is hands down MY FAVORITE SHOW EVER. Not only am I obsessed with the tv show but I keep up with the comics also. I have to warn people when watching the show with me because I am so emotionally invested in it, people tend to be a little shocked. Especially when I start crying because my favorite characters head got smashed in (no spoilers). I have to warn that this  show is NOT for someone who can't handle some gore. There is killing in every episode, whether it be a human or a zombie. There are characters on the show that have been there since day one, but I you won't be able to watch this show without one of your favorite character dying. You'll get attached to the good guys, bad guys, and maybe even a couple of zombies. The show started out by showing conflict between the living vs the dead, but as time goes on you'll start to see that the real conflict is the living and the living. There are many twist and turns to keep your attention and leave you wanting more. Great writing, great special effects, and great actors. I would highly recommend this show

I’m not ashamed to say that watching the series is away for me and my older sons and my teenage son to bond. We sit here and watch the  Walking Dead like we’re experiencing it firsthand. This is a definite family favorite and although the storyline sometimes get a little dry, for the most part TWD keeps us captivated sparking long conversations and talk of possible zombie preparations (lol). TWD does seem like it’s coming to an end, not sure...hope not they got to find a way to keep it going

As I write this review I am watching Season 8 mid finale. I love this series so much even though I wasn't the biggest fan at first. I feel the first couple seasons were more about fighting against zombies and the last couple of seasons is trying to survive in an environment with deranged humans and zombies. I feel like it's coming to an end so I hope the ending leaves me satisfied but overall great series with attention grabbing scenes and characters you either love or hate. RIP Glen. 😭

Who doesn't love the walking dead I'm obsessed with this show watched since day one. I love how no actor is save one minute they are there next either dead or become a zombie. The walking dead is amazing. You'll either fall in love with the character or hate them. I promise this show won't disappoint you

I only recently was talked into watching the first episode by my boyfriend as I avoid the Undead, Ghost, Vampire genre. I was blown away! I could not stop watching and had to get EVERY episode! They made 6 episodes year 1 and about 12 year 2, at 42 minutes an episode the entire year 1&2 run time is around 12 hours total and COULD RUN AS ONE 12 HOUR MOVIE, and you would still not wanna leave for popcorn. The end of each episode left me dying for the next one, The writing is incredible, the character development amazing and don't suppose you know who will live or die here cause you will have no idea. The quality makes it seem as if all other series are quaint and boring. I find myself thinking about the next episode every day. VERY WATCHABLE; VERY ENTERTAINING; GREAT GREAT SERIES!!

So if this were earlier in the show, I likely would have given this series a 5 star review. The first several seasons are absolutely amazing, terrifying, and make you sit on the edge of your seat watching them! I would seriously be sweating for the characters as they were chased by walkers. It was that good. However, more recent seasons have slowed down, and for about 2 seasons I was like "why am I even watching this still?". I guess just being committed to the characters and the series. Then this most latest season did pick up, and I actually fell back in love with it. But those 2 seasons that were slow really made me not like the series as much - that was a lot of time that the story was super slow and not at all interesting.

My family and I are obsessed with zombie movies so we were ecstatic to find a zombie series. I am amazed of the production of this show. They put so much work on the details of the zombies that it looks amazing on tv and they look gross, scary and REAL. Story line is great as always. I love every arc and the characters that's been introduced on every season. As you watch the series, be prepared to get attach to the characters and be prepared to let go of some of your favorites because this is not a show where they live happily after. LOL. This show is about survival so here you will see that you shouldn't just be scared of the dead but also the living. I love TWD, and I'd totally recommend this show to everyone.

I love this show, I was a little bit of a late bloomer when it came to this, but once I started it on Netflix I couldnt change it! the character development is amazing in this show along witht he continued story line. My favorite character has to be Darely Dickson, played by Norman Reedus, he is such a bada** (sorry for my lack of adjectives, but seriously theres no other way to describe his personality) plus hes super attractive in my opinion even for being "dirty" most the time from being in a "post apocalyptic" world.

I would’ve given this five stars up until recently. It feels like they’re drawing out every episode so much it’s painful. Regardless the makeup is great and the character development is fantastic. Watch it - you will be entertained!

Not sure how all of the hype on this show started. I enjoyed the first season, but after that, it kind of dropped off. The third season, in fact, was so disappointing that I stopped watching it all together. This would have been great if they had ended it after just a single season or two seasons, or even three if they hadn't dragged the third season out so much. TV shows seem to think that a show needs to be on for 10-15 years, but they really don't.
