Description:

Drafted into the US Army, Michael Mullen left his family's Iowa farm in September 1969 to fight for his country in Vietnam. Six months later, Michael was killed, not by the North Vietnamese, but by artillery fire from friendly forces. With the government failing to provide the precise circumstances of his death, Mullen's devastated parents, Peg and Gene, demanded to know the truth. A year later, Peg Mullen was under FBI surveillance. In a riveting narrative that moves from the American heartland to the jungles of Vietnam, to an interview with Mullen's battalion commander, Lt. Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, Bryan brings to life a military mission gone wrong, a family's explosive confrontation with their government, and the tragedy of a nation at war with itself.

Quotes:

Not since Truman Capote's In Cold Blood...has there been as powerful, as emotional a piece of non-fiction., The Washington Star

The great war stories do not deal solely with the death of soldiers but with the death of idealism, and Bryan's handling of that theme is certainly the finest that has come out of the Vietnam War., THe New York Times

C.D.B. Bryan has dramatized the tragedy [of Vietnam] as it has never been dramatized before...Powerful...I found myself close to tears of rage and frustration., The New York Times

A gripping tale, a masterpiece...Begin this book and you may well not be able to put it down until you have consumed it., Cleveland Press

A triumph...Bryan has entered an elusive realm of universal truths related to war...He engages us-in a way that no Vietnam polemic or slogan or documentary or drama yet has., Chicago Sun-Times
