About This Book

Here is the epic story of Vietnam and the sixties told through the events of a few gripping, passionate days of war and peace in October 1967. This book brings that tumultous time back to life while exploring questions about the meaning of dissent and the official manipuation of truth, issues as relevant today as they were decades ago. In a seamless narrative, the author weaves together the stories of three very different worlds: the death and heroism of soldiers in Vietnam, the anger and anxiety of antiwar students back home, and the confusion and obfuscating behaviour of officials in Washington. To understand what happens to people in these interconnected stories is to understand America's anguish. Based on thousands of primary documents and 180 on-the-record intervivews, the book describes the battles that evoked cultural and political conflicts reverberate.
