Snapshots of Vietnam: the Unraveling of a Non-Combatant by James F. Marsh
Author: James F. Marsh
Snapshots of Vietnam: the Unraveling of a Non-Combatant tells the true story of Jim Marsh's thirteen months in Vietnam in a series of vignettes that capture his internal war as well as the external bloodshed. Marsh shows the war through these literary photos that are both poetic and profound in their brevity and simplicity. Each piece captures a scene, and when put all together the book as a whole shows a young man falling apart as he is broken physically and mentally.Thirty-five years after returning from the war, Marsh begins to heal by writing down these images that have haunted him all these years. And the reader is also healed in the process.
