Four Hours in My Lai Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is an account of this war crime. Throughout the US and Vietnam, the authors have tracked down and interviewed survivors of the massacre, perpetrators and bystanders, to describe the culture of a war which turned the young men of Charlie Company, after only three months in Vietnam, into the brutal killers of My Lai.

Synopsis:

On March 16, 1968, a battle-scarred U.S. fighting unit entered the Vietnamese hamlet of My Lai. There, a group of soldiers murdered 500 unarmed women, children and old men. Simply and courageously, Four Hours in My Lai tells the truth about what happened--a story that should never be forgotten. Companion to the Emmy Award-winning documentary Four Hours to My Lai.

Synopsis:

Uncovering the secrets behind the 1968 My Lai massacre in Vietnam, this is "a brutal, cautionary tale that serves as a painful reminder of the worst that can happen in war."—Chicago Tribune.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [410]-414) and index.
