This book is a unique study of the Vietnam War that is best called a "memograph" because it combines both the skills and methods of the formal historical monograph with those of the memoirist. Through its monographic lens, this book sheds new light on a number of important aspects of the Vietnam War. Through its memoir lens, the book shows the ways in which war-time issues and policies played out in the lives of the men who fought in Vietnam.
