A Life in a Year: The American Infantryman in Vietnam by James Ebert

Author James Ebert relates the experiences of sixty army and marine infantrymen who served one-year tours of duty in Vietnam between1965 and 1972. Basing his work on personal interviews and oral history collections, he paints a picture of a typical year that begins withinduction, moves on to the war in the bush, and concludes with the return to a hostile America.The infantrymen confronted environmentsfrom rice paddies to jungles, from densely populated cities to virtually empty countrysides. They fought in patrol skirmishes and indivision-scale battles. They learned to kill but few understood A war with no clear objectives. They survived, but most paid a price for theirsurvival. A LIFE IN A years superb organization, thoroughness, and clarity make it superior to many earlier such accounts.
