Although it is short & easy to read, I found it taught me a number of things about the people involved; the military, journalists and civilians caught in that mayhem.
War Torn leave the reader happy and sad but thoroughly enchanted. For anyone who is a history buff, a traveler planning to visit Vietnam or simply a lover of great tales, I highly recommend this book.
I was struck by the common threads in all 9 contributors' personal accounts of their experiences in Vietnam, covering the War. All were profoundly affected by their time in Vietnam, not unlike soldiers who courageously served our country there so long ago. I was fascinated by their vivid descriptions of Saigon and the lives they led there, juxtaposed against the harsh and tragic reality of covering combat operations as they occurred.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the Vietnam War or the modern history of journalism.
I highly recommend this book. Its an inside view of how journalism is at its best particularly how women broke the barrier in a world where men dominated the press coverage!
