Throughout the book, the perspective is the author's, first as a Vietnam GI in the thick of the early, low-intensity war, then later as a Vietnamese-speaking civilian contractor. John Buquoi bore witness from the fateful year of 1963 until the end of his extended stay in-country in 1970. Now from the distance of time and reflection, the poet looks back nearly half a century with grace, insight, and occasional bittersweet moments. A notable collection of poems that takes its rightful place on the shelf of distinguished Vietnam War literature.
