About the Author:

Writer and lecturer Michael Uhl lives in Walpole, Maine.

Review:

A fascinating account of one of the lesser known but historically significant organizations to emerge in opposition to the American War in Vietnam...Uhl navigates deftly back and forth between the personal and the public facets...a valuable contribution to both the literature and the history of the Vietnam War, made all the more timely by American involvement in yet another ambiguous, costly, and arguably unwinnable war --W.D. Ehrhart, author of The Madness of It All

Michael Uhl tells us in great personal detail about the brutal absurdity of the Vietnam War environment. Uhl's sensitive self-observation deepens our grasp of psychological currents of an ugly war and of boldly effective forms of opposition to that war --Robert Jay Lifton, Home from the War: Learning from Vietnam Veterans

Michael Uhl is a gifted writer whose memoir describes his struggle to fully engage and then defend his and our humanity. Uhl's moral outrage and integrity led him to speak out about war crimes in Vietnam, to apply the lessons of Nuremberg, and to play a leading role in the Veterans movement to end that murderous war --Joseph Gerson, Program Director, American Friends Service Committee in New England
