A conversation with Al Santoli on Vietnam
Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Examines the lasting impact the Vietnam War has had on all of its participants.
Ten years after the fall of Saigon ended the Vietnam War, host Peter Krogh sits down with author and Vietnam veteran Al Santoli to discuss Mr. Santoli's new book, Everything We Had: An Oral History of the Vietnam War. More than a decade after the last Americans withdrew, the Vietnam War remained one of the most controversial conflicts in American history. Despite the war's broad coverage by the media, however, the stories of many players on both sides of the conflict went largely untold. In this episode, Mr. Santoli discusses the effects the war had on a variety of individuals interviewed for his oral history, ranging from the average American GI to a Cambodian farmwoman caught in the fighting, as well as the lasting impact the Vietnam War has left on all of its participants.
