About this product
- DescriptionThe first book to chronicle the effects of chemical warfare on the Vietnamese people and their environment, where, even today, more than three million people - including 500,000 children - are sick and dying from birth defects, cancer and other illnesses that can be directly traced to Agent Orange/dioxin exposure. Weaving first-person accounts with original research, Vietnam War scholar Fred A. Wilcox examines long-term consequences for future generations, laying bare the ongoing tragedy in Vietnam and calling for the US to admit its role in it.
