Waiting for an Army to Die: The Tragedy of Agent Orange

by Fred A. Wilcox (Author)

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal
First published in 1983, this volume received wide praise and made ALA's most
notable list; it was "highly recommended" by LJ 's reviewer ( LJ 7/83). Despite
that , it went quickly out of print. This paper edition contains the original
text plus a new introduction by the author, who discusses the class action suit
brought against the government by Vietnam veterans suffering from their wartime
exposure to the herbicide. With America's newfound willingness to talk about
Vietnam, this book should see a lot of use.

From the Publisher
Telling a tragic and important story, Vietnam War veterans who were exposed to
Agent Orange chronicle their discovery of the cause of serious illnesses within
their ranks and birth defects among their children, as well as their long battle
with a government that refused to listen to their complaints.
