Summary
This book is based on 500 interviews with men and women who came of age in the 1960s and 1970s. Some went to Vietnam, some did not. We hear from protesters, exiles, deserters, men who mutilated and starved to avoid the draft, soldiers, nurses, wives, lovers and others who still fight daily the terrible legacy of post-traumatic stress. The book holds a poignant message for a nation which, once again, contemplates sending its sons to war in the Middle East and Central America
