About this title


Parallels reclaims the experience of American and Soviet participants in the two longest and most devastating episodes of contemporary warfare: Vietnam and Afghanistan. The volume is constructed directly from the narratives and recollection of surviving veterans, and encapsulates the voiced "realities," both choral and discordantly individual, of what those participants have undergone and endured. In their very intensity and authenticity, these voices pose a challenge to conventional understandings of contemporary warfare.

From Library Journal:

Bringing academic focus onto the experience of modern warfare generally produces a schism between the dispassion of the examiner and the passion of the combatant. Nevertheless, this work sheds light on the combat experience and its effect on the survivors. With interview transcripts from both U.S. veterans of Vietnam and Panama and Russian veterans of Afghanistan the editors organize the experience of mental and emotional trauma into such themes as the Soldiers Knowledge, the Dark Side, Healing, and the like. Both thoughtful and dramatic, this should be strongly considered for collections with a military history focus, and certainly for veterans' affairs, where its emphasis on healing will be welcome.
