Book Details
  • Author: Douglas Bey
  • Publisher: Texas A&M University Press
  • Edition: Illustrated
"Each month Bey and his staff saw some four hundred men, including characters like the Vietnam equivalent of Klinger from M*A*S*H, a killer dentist, soldiers addicted to killing, and others who did not want to go home. He witnessed firsthand black pride, Vietnamese prejudice, racial conflict, and the Viet Cong's fear of mental illness." "Bey's book provides an account that views the immediacy of combat from the perspective of thirty-five years in psychiatric practice and extensive study of combat and post-combat psychology. Wizard 6 offers new perspective on the Vietnam war and its aftermath and draws cautious comparisons with the issues today's troops may face both in the field and when they return home."--Jacket.
