The Personal Impact Of War

December 12, 2007

A Review of "I Can Still Hear their Cries, Even In My Sleep"

Rated by Marc Leepson (Loudoun County, Virginia, USA)
Book Reviewer Vietnam Veterans of America Magazine

"This book shows starkly that the impact of a war does not end when the shooting stops. This was especially true among the 2.8 million Americans who took part in the Vietnam War, only to come home to a nation that was bitterly divided over the war. The nation as a whole (including the VA, the Congress and the old line veterans' organizations) treated Vietnam veterans shamefully, blaming them for the war and making the adjustment to coming home even more difficult.

Those facts are rendered starkly in this moving book that describes one man's difficult readjustment after serving in the Vietnam War. Doc McFall saw war at its worst during his year in Vietnam. His story is deeply moving and one that should be widely read."
