Used this book for a History course on the America in the 60s with a concentration on the Vietnam war. One of the most depressing classes I ever took. Excellent account of many aspects the war - companion to the groundbreaking (at the time) PBS series. I was born in 1962 and I remember the war being on TV when I was a kid - even though the parents tried to shelter us from it. Until I took this class, I really didn't understand the disillusionment of the generation before me. Really eye opening.
