I haven't read the entire book yet, but I do know that it's dynamic.....I know the person that wrote chapter 4....everybody should read this book....it really hits home.....as someone who is female and if I had been a male would also have been in Viet Nam. All the men (very young men) that were around my age as soon as they finished high school were drafted to go to Viet Nam. I know quite a few people that were either killed or wounded in that "war". But most of those guys don't generally talk about their experiences. After reading the amount of the book I have thus far read, I get it......WOW.....there were points I've read so far that I had so many tears in my eyes I couldn't read the words. Everyone, especially the ones that weren't in the "war", should read this....they will get a new outlook on how awful it was for our troops there and when they returned to the U.S. If people don't respect our troops after reading this book, then they don't even know what respect is. DEFINITE READ!!

I was always tuning in to the 6pm News for the updates on this war back in the 60's and 70's. I was sickened at the way these Veterans were treated when they returned home. They had been through so much and seen more than we can imagine. This book was put together by some Veterans in the town I now live in and I wanted to buy it to support them. There are several stories written by different Veterans. It is amazing that these men were able to cope and get on with their lives through no support of the public or our government. This is an excellent book and I highly recommend the read. God Bless our Viet Nam Veterans.

Format: Paperback
To say that this book has heart is an understatement. Nineteen veterans who served in Vietnam between 1965 and 1972 poured their personal stories on the page to tell those of us who never experienced the Vietnam War what it’s been like to fight it for more than 40 years – first in ‘Nam and then at home. One cannot read this book without being touched by the veterans’ unforgettable tales of devastation and facing unspeakable horrors that few ever experience. Their thoughts, emotions, and insights are laid bare for all of us to read.

Because of the bitter divisiveness and controversy of the war (not a conflict) and the trauma inflicted on those who survived Vietnam and returned home to a frigid reception, their stories too long were untold. No longer. These authors’ unvarnished and frank narratives pull no punches in the faces of the faint of heart, the easily offended, or those who treated the Vietnam veterans with contempt.

Regardless of one’s view of the Vietnam War, these accounts are critical to understanding what really happened and how those involved were affected. One must remember and learn from a war that many wanted to forget so that the past is never repeated. These soldiers’ stories help preserve the legacy of the war, from the Band of Brothers to the Agent Orange and anti-war protests. Whether one agrees with what has been written is not as important as reading the book to understand the fall out of a conflict in Vietnam and at home that, in some ways, is still being fought by those who remain.

The book is written from the unique perspectives of veterans who served in different branches of the U.S. Military across South Vietnam at the height of the war.
