Between 1965 and 1975, the Vietnam War claimed over 58,000 American lives, many thousands more Allied troops from Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, as well as hundreds of thousands of troops and civilians from North and South Vietnam. The conflict changed the political and social landscape of the United States and Vietnam and greatly affected US foreign policy, reshaping the course of the Cold War. Thirty years after its end, the war remains a focal point in the lives of those who served in it and those who protested it. Its long shadow reaches into the twenty-first century as a reminder, a lesson, and a warning. Collected here are the moving and fascinating experiences of the men and women who witnessed and participated in the Vietnam War. From officers, soldiers, pilots, and medics to civilians in America who witnessed the domestic upheaval, these voices give a vivid and poignant insight into the saga that was the Vietnam War.
