I read the first edition of this years ago. I see that there is an updated for the 21st century edition. I may have to read that. I know that your reading and research queue list long, but as I remember it the book gave me much to think about on the subject of the human cost of war (not just the obvious victims). Especially the improved (sic) training methods for Vietnam that dramatically increased the percentage who engaged in combat. It has long been an issue with me that they worked so hard to make us killers and did nothing when we were released from active duty to fix that. At the time they had no experience with that need, or they just didn’t give a damn.
