The Boys of '67: Charlie Company's War in Vietnam (Paperback)

£30.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Across the nation in the spring of 1966, farm boys from the Midwest, surfers from California and city-slickers from Cleveland opened their mail to find greetings from Uncle Sam. Some of these men, optimistic and looking to serve their country, joined Charlie Company and trained for service. They deployed together, experiencing the camaraderie, fear, smell, pain, violence and senseless deaths. And through it all they wrote letters back and forth with the loved ones they'd left behind.



Back at home, the families of Charlie Company faced fear, loneliness and uncertainty. As the war came to a close, everyone had irrevocably changed. Some families strove to set the war aside, while others wrestled with darkness as wives stood by their husbands through homelessness, alcoholism, and physical abuse. Some couldn't stand the pain and left the loves of their lives forever. Some reclaimed their loved ones from the brink of oblivion. Some had only memories to cherish.



An emotionally raw and visceral journey through the tragedies, sorrows and triumphs of the Vietnam War and its aftermath, The Boys of '67 brings the experiences of the soldiers and families of Charlie Company vividly to life.

Dr Andrew Wiest is University Distinguished Professor of History and the founding director of the Dale Center for the Study of War & History at the University of Southern Mississippi. Specializing in World War I and Vietnam, he has served as a Visiting Senior Lecturer at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst and as a Visiting Professor in the Department of Warfighting Strategy in the United States Air Force Air War College. Since 1992 Dr Wiest has been active in international education, developing the award-winning Vietnam Study Abroad Program. Wiest's titles include the award-winning Vietnam's Forgotten Army: Heroism and Betrayal in the ARVN (New York University) and The Boys of '67 (Osprey) which was the basis for the Emmy-nominated National Geographic Channel Documentary Brothers in War. Erik Hendrix was raised on military bases while fed a steady diet of B-movies, science fiction, and comic books. He has become a mad-scientist creator and world-builder through his writing. His curiosity for history was sparked at a young age by his father, a retired Marine and Vietnam Vet, whose passion for genealogy extends back decades. Erik's study of history continued into college, when he took countless extra courses 'for fun', leading into his professional writing career, which include co-writing the graphic novel D-Day: Storming Fortress Europe for Osprey Publishing.
