Summary
  • "An exploration of the Vietnam War from many different perspectives including American soldiers, a nurse, and a Vietnamese refugee."--Provided by publisher

Each individual reveals a difference facet of the war and moves us forward in time. Partridge also profiles key American leaders and events, to remind us of all that was happening at home; and highlights veteran's struggles to acclimate to life after Vietnam. -- adapted from jacket
