About this title

Synopsis:

This book contains interviews from Lane with over 30 of the more articulate men he saw. If you convince your soldiers that the enemy is less than human, comparable to baggage at best, a child assassin at worst, and then inform them that their mission is to score high in the body-count exercise, you cannot feign surprise when you discover what the war has become. If Americans know less than all there is to know about the terrible cost the war is imposing upon the civilian population of South Vietnam, they know next to nothing of the real cost America pays for their own adventure. The real price is in the sacrifice of an entire generation.
