<B>Sukey's favorite</B> <B>They Marched Into Sunlight: War and Peace, Vietnam and America, October 1967</B>, written and read by David Maraniss, is a powerful war book and, whether intended or not, a truly powerful anti-war book. In exquisite detail, based on thousands of documents and 180 on-the-record interviews, Maraniss interweaves two stories from different continents: a horrific ambush that the brave boys of the Black Lions, a renowned battalion of the First Infantry Division, marched into 44 miles northeast of Saigon, and a demonstration at the University of Wisconsin against Dow Chemical, manufacturers of napalm. The two events occurred on consecutive days in October, 1967, a coincidence that juxtaposes the battles of war and peace and conviction and ambiguity in that turbulent time, an era that resonates with heightened intensity today. A must listen for everyone who cares about the consequences of war, then and now. <I>Please note: these audio titles may be available in formats other than the ones reviewed here. </I>
