Synopsis: " In 1966 boys went to Vietnam because it was their duty to do so. Some fought, some supported the fighters. All knew danger because there were no front lines in Vietnam. Sleep sometimes interrupted by incoming mortars. Days often jarred by grenades tossed into bars or claymore mines planted beneath picnic tables. Bill Upton served as an airplane crew chief flying out of the resort city of Vung Tau. He survived the war and was changed by it. Pizza & Mortars: Ba- muoi-ba & Body Bags is about coming of age in a war zone."
From the Publisher: Fighting Old People’s Wars A Book on Coming-of-Age in a War Zone
War snuffs out our relationships and our lives. What happens when we send our young people to fight wars in foreign shores? Vietnam War veteran William R. Upton provides a vivid account of his one-year assignment to Vietnam in Pizza and Mortars: Ba-muoi-ba & Body Bags.
In the book we are transported to the thick jungles of this tropical foreign country. Upton gives a lucid description of their day-to-day life in the war zone and a lot more. War is not always about death and dying. The book tells us that our young men had to deal with love, loss, coping, friendship, hate, bigotry, resentment, and longing for home. Our young boys had their "growing pains" yet had to spend years of their prime to fight battles for America.
Upton served as airplane crew chief flying out of the resort city of Vung Tau. He survived the war but was forever changed by it. Pizza and Mortars is more than a war account. The Vietnam War happened several years ago, but some lessons are yet to be learned. The book makes us ask why we send our young people to fight old people’s battles. Pizza and Mortars is a riveting account of innocence brutally lost.
