Provocative, courageous and filled with perspective, Home Front: Viet Nam and Families at War shares the grim realities of war and how it affects victims and families. Written by Willard D. Gray, this read boldly elucidates the infamous saying, “Nobody wins in a war.”
The Viet Nam War has long been over but the quest to end the long-running chain of warfare still continues hitherto. In this engaging discussion about the history of conflicts and their relevance to civilization, Gray tells the victims’ stories in exactly the same way as they were felt and perceived.
Home Front: Viet Nam and Families at War recounts the private ordeals of several families who bore the brunt of America’s war in Viet Nam. Their experiences, an ongoing tragedy since the last U.S. soldiers left Vietnamese soil, reveal the physical and psychological wounds of war—wounds that don’t discriminate between soldier and family. From the backwoods of Maine to the rugged wide open landscape of Montana, readers will witness the heart-pounding stories of a dozen soldiers and their families.
In addition, the author’s personal views and stories about the impact of war will melt everyone’s hearts, allowing the thought of this book to penetrate into the subconscious. This poignant and moving book will let one into the shoes of someone else’s friend, cousin, brother, father, husband who went to war and came back with such immense losses, no one can replace.
