This book has the accounts of several people who served in Vietnam and who are all from the same county in Rhode Island. The experiences are grouped by topic like In-Country, Training, Being Wounded...
This book is not an analysis of the war or its place in the geopolitical landscape of the Cold War. It is simply how the war was viewed by a handful of (un)willing participants. This is the strength of this book because war to the individual isn't ideology and doctrine, but staying alive, seeing a friend die or trying to repair a body damaged by war.
Each account is short; the longest about 2 pages. The books ends with an entry about what happened to each person after the war. ( )
