From the Back Cover:

Home to War is amazing. It is simultaneously a horror story and a history lesson, a love story of camaraderie and a whacked-out, often humorous series of biographical sketches.” —San Francisco Chronicle

Home to War is an essential chronicle of a history that no one but the participants know well. Nicosia’s rich narrative [proves that] more than a quarter century after the end of that shameful war, attention must still be paid.”—Washington Post

“Gerald Nicosia’s exhaustive chronicle of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) and the numerous organizations descended from it [covers] an important but largely unknown chapter in our nation’s history. . . . Home to War remains a monument to the only heroism emerging in that particular nightmare.” —Newsday

“In his essential new book, Home to War, Gerald Nicosia gives us a comprehensive history of Vietnam Veterans Against the War, from its inception through court cases involving Agent Orange. . . . his time and commitment show up on every page.”—Los Angeles Times

“Gerald Nicosia’s passionate account of the Vietnam veterans’ movement reminds us [that] the war continues to haunt the American soul.”—Chicago Tribune

From the Inside Flap:

Angeles Times Best Books of the Year Selection
A San Francisco Chronicle Bestseller
