Allowing readers to witness the war through the eyes of the men and women who served in Vietnam, this collection of more than 200 letters provides personal accounts of such things as the first impressions of the rigors of life in the bush, longing for home and family, emotions over the conduct of the war, and the ache at the loss of a friend in battle.

Poignant in their rare honesty, the letters are "riveting,…extraordinary by [their] very ordinariness…for the most part, neither deep nor philosophical, only very, very human" (Los Angeles Times). Revealing the complex emotions and daily realities of fighting in the war, these sources offer a powerful, intimate portrait of the many faces of Vietnam veterans.
