This poignant update of the Agent Orange controversy combines military history with medical and human drama. Admiral Zumwalt was the naval leader who ordered the chemical defoliant to be used along Vietnamese rivers. His own son became exposed to the agent, developed multiple cancers, and fathered a retarded child. Pekkanen has spliced together numerous reminiscences from both Zumwalts, other family members, and friends into a readable stream-of-consciousness account of the family's experiences. Like all good biographers, he lets his subjects tell more about themselves than they intend. The "dual autobiography" which results is realistic and touching without being mawkish.
