"A powerful chronicle. History comes alive in the words of those who helped make it."___New York Times Book Review

"Consistently gripping. It's all here, well edited and framed by Maurer: the combat horrors, the political maneuvering and corruption, the bar-sex and the drugs, the roots and trunk and rotten flowers of the war. A powerful and disturbing book." Kirkus "These are authentic voices. They all ring true.? [An] astonishing and compelling page-turner."___Washington Post Book World "Every story is unique and what comes across is a book filled with pain, anger, guilt, pride in the USA, forgiveness, black and ironic humor, and above all what it means to those who went through the national trauma. Maurer has produced an unforgettable book that well might turn out to be a classic on this war."___ Chattanooga News-Free Press "Maddening and absolutely necessary."___Studs Terkel, Chicago Tribune "Oral history at its best.? Especially valuable is the inclusion of testimonies from women."___Providence Sunday Journal
