Abstract:

"'The tragedy at Mylai cannot be condoned, ' writes Martin Gershen, 'but the Americans who were thrust into that situation cannot be condemned. For if there was a failure, it must rest with the society that forced these kids to go to die in a foreign land for a cause it refused to defend at home.' What really happened at Mylai? Why did it happen? What kind of a man is Lieutenant Calley? Captain Medina? The men under their command? Prizewinning reporter Martin Gershen logged over 20,000 miles in this country and in Vietnam talking to the indicted men, their families, their lawyers, high Pentagon officials ... Sure to spark controversy, Gershen's findings clash at key points with those of Seymour Hersh. Mr. Gershen spoke with many members of Charlie Company whom no other reporter was able to reach. His account makes earlier ones outdated."--Jacket.
