Great account of early Vietnam conflict, a POW, and his wife at home. I enjoyed the book for its insights into how the war started and POW life. Read full review

Review: In Love and War

User Review  - Jane Mathews - Goodreads

Love the perspectives of this true story. Every other chapter is written by the husband, and then the wife. Most of it while Jim was a prisoner of war and some of it in the form of their letters back and forth to each other. Read full review
