Voices of the Vietnam War

Voices of the Vietnam War
$19.99
Voices of the Vietnam War is an oral history told by the soldiers who fought, and others who were impacted by the fighting halfway around the world, most especially the wives and siblings who waited at home. This book listens to two people who were against the war and had to take their own philosophical stand, often against their own families and friends. The book features chapters personally written by three military veterans. Two wives tell the story of how they waited at home while their husbands fought in Vietnam, relying on letters and television news for information.Decorated combat officer David Christian is the strongest voice in the book, describing his unit's war experiences and then detailing the loss of his brother Doug to Agent Orange-linked cancer. Christian became a leading advocate for veterans' disability pensions and helped gain government approval for Agent Orange benefits.Vietnam War veteran Terry Nau wrote and edited this book, his fifth on the subject. He interviewed soldiers from his artillery unit, high school friends who went to war, and also convinced acquaintances to tell their own story in their own words.
