Summary

"Every American has some opinion on Vietnam and the Vietnamese War. For some, it's the symbol of national disgrace, the war we never should have fought. For others, it is a place of memories too terrible to forget. "Ex-grunts (infantrymen) like me, remember it as a place where long periods of boredom were punctuated by eternal moments of terror" So speaks writer Doug Murray, author and co-creator of the Vietnam War comic series The 'Nam. Often informative, seldom simplistic, and routinely concerned with the war's consequences on man, The 'Nam is conceived, written, and drawn by veterans. The 'Nam examines a particularly divisive and controversial chapter in American and world history: the Vietnam War, and tells it from a viewpoint of "the grunts, the ground-pounders who saw war as a day-to-day struggle for life." These are stories of that war, as told by men who fought it.
