Summary:

Here is the epic story of Vietnam and the sixties told through the events of a few gripping, passionate days of war and peace in October 1967. They Marched Into Sunlight brings that tumultuous time back to life while exploring questions about the meaning of dissent and the official manipulation of truth, issues as relevant today as they were decades ago.

In a seamless narrative, Maraniss weaves together the stories of three very different worlds: the death and heroism of soldiers in Vietnam, the anger and anxiety of antiwar students back home, and the confusion and obfuscating behavior of officials in Washington. To understand what happens to the people in these interconnected stories is to understand America's anguish. Based on thousands of primary documents and 180 on-the-record interviews, the book describes the battles that evoked cultural and political conflicts that still reverberate.

Genres:

  • Anonymous

    For those of us who were young during the Viet Nam era, it confirms the senselessness of this war by focusing on one particular battle. The element of chance as a life threatening element and the thoroughly political (as opposed to) idealogical nature of conflict are explored. The listener becomes privy to the feelings of unreality of family members who are going about their everyday tasks when the jolting news of the death of their loved one arrives. Insight is also gained regarding the thoughts and actions of student demonstrators as well as university administrators who had to deal with the protests.
