Vietnam War Literature


Viet Journal.
by [Vietnam War Literature] Jones, James.

Publisher Information:
Delacorte Press, New York:: 1974.

A Fine copy in a Fine, unclipped dust jacket. The Vietnam War was winding down In 1973 when novelist James Jones was asked to go to the war zone and report on "the sights, the sound, the smells of Vietnam--after the end." Seeking one last first-hand look at war, Jones agreed to go at a time when the principal combatants were reported to be at a "cease-fire" but upon his arrival he quickly realized there was no such halt in the fighting. In this on-the-scene diary, Jones reports on his observations of an aerial bombardment, his air inspection of My Lai--the scene of a US massacre of Vietnamese civilians, survivors of the Hue massacres conducted by the Viet Cong, as well as the day to day life of military life in a war zone.
