Waiting for an Army to Die: The Tragedy of Agent Orange

by Fred A. Wilcox  

Telling a tragic and important story, Vietnam War veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange chronicle their discovery of the cause of serious illnesses within their ranks and birth defects among their children, as well as their long battle with a government that refused to listen to their complaints.

 

Review:

First published in 1983, this volume received wide praise and made ALA's most notable list; it was "highly recommended" by LJ 's reviewer ( LJ 7/83). Despite that , it went quickly out of print. This paper edition contains the original text plus a new introduction by the author, who discusses the class action suit brought against the government by Vietnam veterans suffering from their wartime exposure to the herbicide. With America's newfound willingness to talk about Vietnam, this book should see a lot of use.-- MR
