Why Didn't You Have To Go To Vietnam, Daddy? It's a question children have been asking since the 1960's. Only a true Vietnam War veteran could write such a biting, satirical, revealing look into the everyday lives of soldiers within Vietnam. In the tradition of MASH and Catch 22, Why Didn't You Have To Go To Vietnam, Daddy is brutally honest about the widespread drug use among GI's, and a new insight into the antiwar feelings of many in the US Army. It's a snapshot of America in the late 1960's, the time of the military draft that singled out those sent to Vietnam, and those left behind. It's not like any other book you may have ever read about the Vietnam era, including the cruel twists of fate that awaited many returning veterans. The book is part anti-war novel, part history book, and part biography of the counter culture from the Vietnam Generation. Why Didn't You Have To Go To Vietnam, Daddy is a must-read for all who lived during those tumultuous times, and anyone who wants a better understanding of the Vietnam War's legacy among the baby boomer generation.
