More Than a Soldier's War: Pacification in Vietnam
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungMore Than a Soldier's War joins together, in one man's experiences, the beginning of the war, the ensuing agonizing course of events, and the ignominious end of one of modern history's most controversial and tormenting conflicts. It vividly describes Americans' efforts to save lives from the grinding daily carnage, shield the innocent, and provide hope for a future of peace and security, all while entangled in a relentless, grisly people's war. Individual Vietnamese emerge in dramatic relief in these pages: both greedy, imperious and selfless, patriotic army officers; intelligent, sympathetic local leaders; parents willing to risk their lives for their children's future welfare.
PortraitEdward Metzner is a retired army officer who is now coordinator of employment programs for the Private Industry Council, County of Monterey, California. As a lieutenant colonel and colonel, he served four tours of duty as a district- and province-level liaison with his Vietnamese counterparts in the pacification program. He is the American most decorated by the Republic of Vietnam.
