Summary

Parallels reclaims the experience of American and Soviet participants in the two longest and most devastating episodes of contemporary warfare: Vietnam and Afghanistan. The volume is constructed directly from the narratives and recollection of surviving veterans, and encapsulates the voiced "realities," both choral and discordantly individual, of what those participants have undergone and endured. In their very intensity and authenticity, these voices pose a challenge to conventional understandings of contemporary warfare.
