"What makes this book special is its honesty. The letters are real; there is no embellishment. You keep turning pages because you're finding out--for the first time-- who our Vietnam soldiers were and are." Sydney Schanberg

I bought this for an History class but kept it on hand later. I feel it gives an bird's eye view of what was really going on in Vietnam from the soldiers point of view, as well as what was really going on here at home.

Great letters from Vietnam soldiers. Heartwrenching, but also a valuable historical eyewitness account.

Very interesting read of history "in the making." A bit depressing as some of the letters are from soldiers who died a few weeks or months after writing their particular letter. Did enjoy the fact that the same soldier had several letters posted in the different parts of the book to see his state of mind change from the beginning to the end. Layout was chronological to the war which made the most sense out of the psychological aspects of the letters.
