More Information
Christian G. Appy's monumental oral history of the Vietnam War is the first work to probe the war's path through both the United States & Vietnam. These vivid testimonies of 135 men & women span the entire history of the Vietnam conflict, from its murky origins in the 1940s to the chaotic fall of Saigon in 1975. Sometimes detached & reflective, often raw & emotional, they allow us to see and feel what this war meant to people literally on all sides--Americans & Vietnamese, generals and grunts, policymakers and protesters, guerrillas and CIA operatives, pilots and doctors, artists and journalists, and a variety of ordinary citizens whose lives were swept up in a cataclysm that killed three million people. By turns harrowing, inspiring, and revelatory, Patriots is not a chronicle of facts & figures, but a vivid human history of the war.
