Every conflict in Vietnam did not take place on the battlefield, and every casualty did not suffer physical wounds. For Navy journalist Wally Jeter, the scars that he brought home from the war were those on his heart. Despite having fallen in love with a beautiful young woman during his year in Saigon, Jeter left her behind when his tour of duty was over. After two decades, he realizes that the only way he'll ever be happy is to return and find his old love, although his journey back brings even greater revelations than his first trip to Southeast Asia. Inspired by the author's experiences in Vietnam in 1970-71, Lost in Saigon is set in the waning years of the long and bitter struggle that defined a generation.
