This will not only help students remember and understand the event, but also put it in context and see how far the military has come in its discipline and wartime preparation.
Allison delivers a tightly drawn rendering of the events preceding, actual incidents involving, and resolution concerning the My Lai massacre that beset a South Vietnamese village during spring 1968.
Allison provides a detailed and highly useful narrative of all the complexities involved in this story of one of the darkest days in the history of the U.S. Army. My Lai: An American Atrocity in the Vietnam War is strongly recommended for anyone interested in the Vietnam War, particularly serving officers.
