Summary
An authentic account of the Vietnam War from the actual letters of the men and women who served there. The harsh realities of ife and death, friendships made and lost - these letters home tell it all, with newsreel and home-movie footage shot by the servicemen themselves. These are the authentic voices of war, some who survived, many who never made it home
