Topic: Not Just Another Book About War- Uncensored letters from a journalist about what really happened in Vietnam jungle combat are paired with his sister’s story of antiwar protest from a Big Ten campus. Grunseth includes letters along with poetry to process what happened then, and in the years since the Vietnam war.
