Praise & Reviews

Horn Book

Providing fresh insight into the Vietnam War, Partridge presents the firsthand accounts of seven veterans and one Vietnamese refugee as well as sections focusing on four American presidents; protestors; and Maya Lin, the designer of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The stories of Asian American, African American, and female service members are particularly resonant in their revelations of nuances and contradictions in both the civil rights and anti-war movements, and how those conflicts continued at home and abroad. While the audiobook lacks the print book’s compelling photographs, hearing personal accounts aloud may be just as emotionally powerful. Porter’s serious, matter-of-fact narration produces a sense that listeners are there with the author on a journey toward a multidimensional understanding of the war.
