Synopsis

The Vietnam War is largely recalled as a mistake, either in the decision to engage there or in the nature of the engagement. Or both. Veterans of the war remain largely anonymous figures, accomplices in the mistake. Critically recounting the steps that led to the war, this book does not excuse the mistakes, but it brings those who served out of the shadows. Enduring Vietnam recounts the experiences of the young Americans who fought in Vietnam and of families who grieved those who did not return. By 1969 nearly half of the junior enlisted men who died in Vietnam were draftees. Their median age was twenty-one?among the non-draftees it was only twenty. The book describes the baby boomers growing up in the 1950s, why they went into the military, what they thought of the war, and what it was like to serve in Namand to come home. With a rich narrative of the Battle for Hamburger Hill, and through substantial interviews with those who served, the book depicts the cruelty of this war and its quiet acts of courage. James Wrights Enduring Vietnam provides an important dimension to the profile of an American generation?and a rich account of an American War.
