"Â To Bear Any Burden is necessary to understand the most significant aspect of the Indochina wars: the human one." —Tran Van Dinh, author of Blue Dragon White Tiger: A Tet Story

"At least this reader would like to spend hours if not days talking to each of the people within these pages." —Jack Reynolds, Network Correspondent, NBC

"... remarkable insight into the human aspect of the war." —Library Journal

The 48 American and Asian veterans, refugees, and officials who speak in this book come from widely divergent backgrounds. In their narratives we hear them reliving crucial moments in the preparation, execution, and aftermath of war. It is a riveting, eyewitness account of the war and also reclaims from this tragic continuum larger patterns of courage and dedication.

About the Author:

Al Santoli is the author of several books, including the New York Times bestseller Everything We Had, which was nominated for a 1983 American Book Award. He served in Vietnam with the 25th Infantry Division and received three Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star for valor.

From Library Journal:

Like his earlier best-selling Everything We Had (1983), Santoli's 1985 volume presents the Vietnam War in the voices of those who fought it. Interviews with 48 participants, including American and Vietnamese soldiers, teachers, refugees, politicos, etc., provide remarkable insight into the human aspect of the war.
