Strange Ground: Americans in Vietnam 1945-1975, An Oral History. 0306808390 (ISBN13: 9780306808395).

A massive (600+ pages) but consistently gripping oral history of American engagement in Vietnam. Maurer is a Business Week staffer and the author of a previous oral history, Not Working, 1980. Maurer didn't serve in Vietnam; in fact, he is, as he confesses in his long introduction to the 65 interviews here, ""a draft dodger"" (by way of a flimsy psychiatric deferment). This book, he explains, grew from his realization a decade ago that he knew little of those who did serve, and needed to know more. STRANGE GROUND: Americans in Vietnam 1945-1975, An Oral History.

Vietnam at War: The History: 1946–1975. by Phillip B. Davidson. In the admirable anthologies put together by Walter Capps and Harry Maurer we encounter the memories of soldiers who say they loved the war, and of whom some were drunk during most of it. Some believed we won most of the battles but lost the war; some feared they had entirely lost their sense of morality. The last is a common feeling among Vietnam veterans, twice as many of whom have committed suicide since the war as died during it.
