Beschreibung von Audible
The authors of the best-selling We Were Soldiers Once and Young revisit the Vietnam where they both served, the General as a battalion and brigade commander, the journalist as field reporter on four separate and extended tours. In somber and moving tones, Galloway describes how time has colored and cast shadows over the co-authors’ own gritty and vivid memories, as well as its effect on some of the soldiers they profiled in the earlier book. For this follow-up they also speak to Viet Cong military leaders with whom they had not previously been in contact to gather additional perspective on how the war changed individuals and how it continues to affect both America and the now-united Vietnam.
Moore and Galloway mix gritty and vivid detail with reverence and respect for their comrades. Their ability to capture man's sense of heroism and brotherhood, their love for their men and their former enemies, and their fascination with the history of this enigmatic country make for riveting listening. We Are Soldiers Still puts a human face on warfare in a way that will not soon be forgotten.
