Book News
A stellar group of writers including journalists Seymour Hersh and David Halberstam, novelist Tim O'Brien, historian Stephen E. Ambrose, psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton, military prosecutor William Eckhardt, and veterans Hugh Thompson and Ron Ridenhour address many of the troubling questions that still persist about My Lai. Their unflinching truth-will-set-you-free approach reexamines these questions with the hope that they might lead to a better understanding of what My Lai means for us now.
