October, 1967 is when I arrived in Vietnam. Thought it would be an interesting read. It was very interesting. Mostly the parts about the protesting and organizing that developed in Madison, University of Wisc. Something I was aware of, but did not understand the depth of the of the anger and response on each side. The military portion was also of interest about the battalion size engaggement with a VC regiment. Errors in military judgment on the US side; efforts to somewhat cover up the mishandling of the battle on US commanders. The skill with which the VC setup and executed the ambush demonstrated their abilities and willingness to fight. More so that we were led to believe at the time. Well researched and well written. ( )

I did not want to read this book, chosen by my book club, but I am very glad I did. Maraniss shines a steady light on the Vietnam war and its consequences (for Americans, mostly). He drew me into the moment of his story and that led to me reflecting on my experience of the Sixties. A truly excellent book! ( )

Getting to know the members of the Black Lion army battalion makes the battle scene in which 61 of them died even more harrowing making the statement of one member ("The whole damn war is run by the book and Charlie can't read English so he gets all the breaks and we usually get killed) even more fitting. The second half of the book chronicles the riot against Dow Chemical at the University of Wisconsin Madison and the impact it had on the faculty student relationship. Vivid reminders of why war is not good for anyone. ( )

I have a pretty close connection to this book's subject matter -- my father was stationed in Vietnam at the same place where the action in the book takes place, and I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison. That's what initially drew me to the book, but the clear and yet descriptive writing style, coupled with the interesting subject matter, kept me reading. I normally don't have a lot of patience for nonfiction, and this book definitely isn't short. It took me quite awhile to finish it, but it's totally worth it. ( )

Some say that we shall never know and that to the Gods are like flies that the boys kill on a summer day, and some say, on the contrary, that the very sparrows do not lose a feather that has not been brushed away by the finger of God.

-- Thorton Wilder, The Bridge of San Luis Rey
Whatever may be the limitations which trammel inquiry elsewhere, we believe that the great state University of Wisconsin should ever encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found.

--Wisconsin Board of Regents, 1894
Into sunlight the marched,
into dog day, into no saints day,
and were cut down.
They marched without knowing
how the air would be sucked from their lungs,
how their lungs would collapse,
how the world would twist itself, would
bend into the cruel angles.

Into the black understanding they marched
until the angels came
calling their names,
until they rose, one by one from the blood.
The light blasted down on them.
The bullets sliced through the razor grass
so there was not even time to speak.
The words would not let themselves be spoken.
Some of them died.
Some of them were not allowed to.

--Bruce Weigl, "Elegy"
