Abstract:

This book depicts the author's military experiences, first as an ROTC cadet at the University of Notre Dame and finally as an Army veteran teaching in Madison, Wisconsin. In 1959, Vietnam was little more than a word on a map; within ten years, Americans saw the Tet Offensive and their campuses in flames. The author was at the ground zeroes of that time, teaching at the United States Military Academy from 1967 to 1969 and then going to the University of Wisconsin, Madison, just after the Dow riots and before the bombing of Sterlin Hall.
