Unaccounted by Michael McDonald-Low is set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War and is the true story of an American infantryman gone missing and the mission to find him forty-four years later. The author gives a first-hand account of the soldiers in the Que Se Son Valley during combat operations that took place in 1968. The author's account of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) mission makes this book a compelling read, detailing the dilemma of soldiers on a battlefield away from their country. The book is honest and the author's depiction of the experiences of these soldiers will leave a lasting impression in the minds of readers.

The book is well written and the author's words will take readers to the era of the Vietnam War and will make them feel as if they are there with the soldiers. The author's determination and dedication are impressive and the vivid descriptions of the jungle and being on the battlefield will haunt readers for a long time. The difficult circumstances faced by the soldiers, the true emotions and realities of war, the acceptance of death on the battlefield, and the effort to locate the missing infantryman decades later will keep readers glued to the book till the very end. The story is thrilling and it will make readers appreciate soldiers and the sacrifices they make for their country. It's definitely a book worth reading for all those who enjoy war stories.
