Publisher Comments:

In four years of interviews that called "superb," Emerson traveled across America to speak to people who fought the war or who fought against it, to those who paid little attention and to others whose lives were changed by it. Her reporting on a small town in Kentucky, which suffered high losses, is considered a remarkable inquiry into the meaning of war and its effects on us. is not just a book about the American experience, for she writes about the Vietnamese people as well with the same insight and brilliance that characterized her reporting during the war, which held her, and so many others, long after it was over.

Synopsis:

"Sensitive, moral, compelling...a book of genuine greatness and largeness of spirit."

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 381-403) and index.
