Soldiers in Revolt: GI Resistance During the Vietnam War
Haymarket Books, 2005
Soldiers in Revolt documents one of the least known and most important aspects of the Vietnam War: the rebellion among U.S. soldiers opposed to the war. From the front lines to stateside military bases, the U.S. armed forces were wracked by widespread resistance, including combat refusals and mutinies. GIs produced more than 250 antiwar committees and underground newspapers to voice their discontent. A new chapter looks at the enduring imprint of this period on the U.S. military and the lessons that this era holds for the U.S. occupation of Iraq.
