Home to War: A History of the Vietnam Veterans' Movement

1 Rezension
As a new generation comes of age, Home to War presents a vivid portrait of American soldiers who faced rejection by the nation in whose name they fought, and virtual abandonment by the government that sent them to risk their lives. In spite of formidable obstacles, these young Vietnam veterans joined together and committed themselves to heroic battles on the home front, from their unsung role in the antiwar movement to their unflagging campaign for medical help and compensation. There is Jan Barry, a disillusioned former West Point cadet who founded Vietnam Veterans Against the War, an organization that would become a beacon of hope for returning vets; Al Hubbard, a charismatic former Black Panther who led thousands of angry veterans to the steps of the Capitol to protest the war and the government's shabby treatment of its veterans; Ron Kovic, whose outrageous-and courageous-stunts, uncensored comments, and provocative politics drew needed attention to the cause; and many others whose inspiring struggles served themselves, their fellow soldiers, and their country. Encompassing some thirty years of activism, readjustment, and healing, Home to War is a fitting tribute to the unbreakable courage, idealism, and decades-long endurance of this generation of American soldiers.
