About the Book

This special edition ebook (available only as an ebook in epub or pdf format) is a collection of some of the best first-person writing about combat in Vietnam available today. Drawn from 24 full-length memoirs and interviews, all published by McFarland (and available separately in complete editions), these excerpts offer important, gripping and provocative stories from men and women who were forever changed by their experiences in the war. They represent the perspectives of Army infantry, forward observers, a journalist, a combat bandsman, Marines, pilots and nurses.
