Product Details

Praise

"This tour de force brings home the pain and suffering of soldiers and kin in a way that no other writing has with which I’m familiar. It is simply splendid." — Walter Cronkite

"A moving, touching, generous book that helps restore humanity to a generation of young Americans who were depersonalized and dehumanized by the political passions of an unpopular war. Read it and weep." — Ted Koppel

"This is a book that needed to be written. Laura Palmer’s sensitivity and understanding…may indeed make Shrapnel in the Heart a classic." — Jan Scruggs, President, Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund

"A powerful and moving book." — Cyra McFadden

"There is an extraordinary and deeply moving eloquence in these expressions of grief. This is a book that should be read, but it is slow going. It is difficult to read through a steady mist of tears." — The Atlantic
