Synopsis

As a journalist, Paxton Andrews would experience  Vietnam firsthand. We follow her from high school in Savannah to  college in Berkeley and then to work in Saigon.

For the soldiers she  knew and met there, Viet Nam would change their  lives in ways they could never have imagined. For the men  in her life, Viet Nam would change their lives in ways hey could not  escape or deny. Peter  Wilson, fresh from law school, was a new recruit  who would confont his fate in Da Nang. Ralph  Johnson, a seasoned AP correspondent, had been in  Saigon since the beginning. He knew Vietnam and the  war inside out. Bill Quinn, captain of the Cu Chi  tunnel rats, was on his fourth tour of duty and it  seemed nothing could touch him. Sergeant Tony  Campobello had come to Vietnam from the streets of  New York to vent a rage that had followed him all the way to Saigon.  

For seven years  Paxton Andrews would write an acclaimed newspaper  column from the front before finally returning to the  States and then attending the Paris peace talks.  But for her and the men who fought in Viet Nam,  life would never be the same again.


From the Paperback edition.
