Overview

In "Women in Vietnam," veteran journalist Ron Steinman, author of "Inside Televisions First War" collects the testimony of sixteen remarkable women who served, and provides an unflinching account of this crucial and long ignored part of the war. In powerful first-hand accounts, we read of their experiences on the front lines, on the bases, and in the cities, towns and villages. All these women served with honor, without complaint, and with distinction. "Women in Vietnam" is a unique historical document and a powerful record of extraordinary accomplishment.
As an significant tribute to the women now serving in Iraq, there is a fresh essay from Ron Steinman about their accomplishments and heroism in that different war in an equally far off land that helps put in perspective how these women today also serve with honor and without complaint.

    Highly Recommended

    The American public knew little of their fighting sons in Viet Nam--and even less of the young girls who kept those boys alive. Mr Steinman was Masterful in his presentation of ver batim words from those young girls--now middle aged women. But their words were as the 20 year old kids that they were then, and perhaps still are in thier hearts and minds. I KNOW---I was a Nurse in Viet Nam--ALL of us VOLUNTEERED. The stories will tell you WHY we did so.

    There Were No Women In Vietnam

    This seems to be the guiding force behind the book. No matter what you know (or think you know) about Vietnam (in my case, very little), this book will open your eyes. Reading this book led me to next read The Soldiers' Story. Understanding the motivations and experiences of the women who served, their similarities and their differences, is vital to an understanding of the Vietnam Conflict and the role of women in the military. Sometimes a bit hard to understand because the speaker's words are unedited.
