A nice review of my book has appeared in a City University of New York publication, CUNY Matters.

“Napoli, a professor of history at Brooklyn College, where he is director of the Vietnam Oral History Project, drew his book from interviews with more than 200 vets and about 600 hours of tape. His skillful listening and deft way of placing the monologues within the broader context of the extensive literature on Vietnam were doubtless honed when he conducted many of the interviews Tom Brokaw used in his best-selling The Greatest Generation and The Greatest Generation Speaks. Adding to the study’s authenticity is Napoli’s promise that he uses no pseudonyms and the obvious fact that no expletives have been deleted.”
