Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A conversation with a group of today's military age men and women about America's involvement in Vietnam inspired Jeff Danziger to write about his own wartime experiences: "War is interesting," he reveals, "if you can avoid getting killed, and don't mind loud noises." Fans of his cartooning will recognize his mordant humor applied to his own wartime training and combat experiences: "I learned, and I think most veterans learn, that making people or nations do something by bombing or sending in armed troops usually fails." Near the end of his telling, Danziger invites his audience--in particular the young friends who inspired him to write this informative and rollicking memoir--to ponder: "What would you do? . . . Could you summon the bravery--or the internal resistance--to simply refuse to be part of the whole idiotic theater of the war? . . . Or would you be like me?"
