The Vietnam War was America's longest war -- and one of its most divisive. The first-person accounts in this anthology describe the authors' attempts to avoid fighting in the war, what combat was like and how they passed the time when they were not fighting, life as a prisoner of war and as a nurse or medic tending the wounded, and the Vietnamese perspective of the war.
"The contributions in the eclectic mix come from individuals such as Eleanor Roosevelt, actress June Havoc, and hobo Box-Car Bertha, with each person's perspective taking readers directly into the experience through details and eye-opening observations."
