Larry Bassett Why are some books on here twice? examples: Fields of Fire and The Things They Carried


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I told it to "check for duplicates," so with any luck nothing should be listed twice, now.

Deborah Fleming Please see my Vitenam War/hippie novel "Without Leave" published in 2014 by Black Mountain Press about a Navy man who goes AWOL in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district in 1967 and meets and artist and college dropout. Their personal journey constitutes the narrative. A lot of research into the military and culture of the times went into the creation of the story. At least please read the Amazon reviews. Thanks.

Steve Woods Thanks I'll check it out

Charles Gould Love To All, JIm ; A young man's letters from Vietnam. James G Rowe Jr. Strawberry Hill Press 1989.


message 9: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Breo Please check out my book "Happiness Is A Warm Gun-A Vietnam Story". My story is just one about a young couple in love during one of the most turbulent times in this country's history. We lived our relationship through letters, phone calls, violence and determination to survive. It's a story about two Baby Boomers; one who fought for his country; and the other, a hippie who peacefully tried to make her government aware of a new voice, a voice of non-violence and peace. We were a couple whose love survived, against the odds; but in the end; whose lives were almost destroyed by that horror.
