Summary
The history of the Vietnam war is complex. Partridge explores the war from eight different perspectives: six American soldiers, one American military nurse, and one Vietnamese refugee. Each individual reveals a different 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
