Edited by Michael E. Stevens
An unforgettable collection of 174 letters and diary entries written by ninety-two Wisconsin men and women who served in Vietnam. Includes a journal kept by Menasha native Frederic Flom on cigarette wrappers during his final sixteen days of captivity--the only known diary smuggled out by a Vietnam prisoner of war.
"Speak[s] more accurately and eloquently about the war than the millions of words already published by novelists and pundits." --Madison Capital Times
"A superb book that should have an appeal not just to residents of Wisconsin but to the 2.5 million Americans who served, and to anyone interested, in the Vietnam War." --Indiana Magazine of History
