Front Lines: Soldiers' Writings from Vietnam.
Breakstone, Sharon; And Others
Intended for high school students, this book contains a collection of personal accounts of Vietnam and the Vietnam War by American and Vietnamese soldiers. An introductory paragraph suggests that one excellent way for students to learn the lessons of the Indochina war is through the words of the soldiers who fought it. Narratives, excerpts from diaries, interviews, and poems are included. Discussion questions are suggested throughout the book. In each of the accounts the soldiers are confronted with a situation which demands a choice involving their basic beliefs and sometimes their lives. War presents these dilemmas in their most dramatic form, but the questions which are raised are ones which students will very likely face in their own lives. A bibliography of print and media for students wanting to further study the Vietnam War is provided. A glossary of unfamiliar words is included. (Author/RM)
