Description: A sympathetic civilian interviewer here debriefs black and white enlisted men and a few officers on every facet of life during the war in Vietnam. Interviewees range from infantry "grunts" to veterans involved in intelligence, interrogation, helicopter duty, and "the rear." Their tours of duty came in the late 1960s and early 1970s. They discuss search-and-kill missions, bombing raids and other combat operations, life in camp, hospital, and stockade, tactical and morale problems, impressions of the South Vietnamese and of the Vietcong. They speculate months before the war ended, on how it would end and what it was about.
