Westheider (history, University of Cincinnati-Clermont College) chronicles one of America's most controversial and divisive wars from the soldier's perspective. He describes what it was like to fight in Vietnam and how that experience can be compared with previous wars. He discusses the war's origin and the history of US involvement from 1945 onwards, then looks at recruitment and training for the Vietnam War, soldiers' assignments, the battlefield and its technology, and soldiers' issues during and after the war, such as racism, morale, drug and alcohol abuse, and problems transitioning back into civilian society. Numerous high-quality b&w historical photos are included. The book concludes with a list of 100 recommended books, articles, and Web sites. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
