9780025630703: And a Hard Rain Fell: A Gi's True Story of the War in Vietnam

John Ketwig's powerful memoir of the war in Vietnam is a visceral account of a young man's odysseyfrom the country roads of upstate New York to the jungles of Vietnam. It is a contrast of cultural upheavals and the harsh realities of war, from rock and roll philosophy and Beatlemania to the sight of a child burned by a napalm bomb....and a hard rain fell is the unforgettable story of a veteran's rage against his country. With a new afterword on the war in Iraq and our government's treatment of current veterans, this story is as relevant today as it was 20 years ago.
