9780393309256: Winners & Losers: Battles, Retreats, Gains, Losses, and Ruins from the Vietnam War

“Sensitive, moral, compelling...a book of genuine greatness and largeness of spirit.” Chicago Tribune

Now an American classic, this is a Vietnam book unlike any other, written by a woman who, after two years of covering the war for The New York Times, comes home wanting to once more love her country and to understand it. In four years of interviews that Newsweek called “superb,” Emerson traveled across America to speak to people who fought the war or who fought against it, to those who paid little attention and to others whose lives were changed by it. Her reporting on a small town in Kentucky, which suffered high losses, is considered a remarkable inquiry into the meaning of war and its effects on us. Winners & Losers is not just a book about the American experience, for she writes about the Vietnamese people as well with the same insight and brilliance that characterized her reporting during the war, which held her, and so many others, long after it was over.
