A frightening, horrific and terrifyingly honest story about what it was really like to serve on the ground during the Vietnam Conflict, how it affected those who served and how easy it was for the American Government to disavow all knowledge of the men who served in its Special Forces. All of the stories, told from a personal point of view, tell of how these men suffered, mostly in silence, from PTSD and how the medical establishment let them down, firstly by not acknowledging its existence until the 1970s and secondly by refusing to admit that combat veterans returning from Vietnam were suffering a form of this. Robert Parker also tells the real story of these Psychiatric Institutions that are supposed to help combat veterans returning from Vietnam deal with their problems, but because many Veterans were misdiagnosed, often the problems were exacerbated.
