Summary In this gripping account of the human cost of the Vietnam War, Ron Glasser offers an unparalleled description of the horror endured daily by those on the front lines. The soldiers counted their days by the length of their tour -- one year, or 365 days -- and they knew, down to the day, how much time they had left. Glasser tells their stories -- of lives shockingly interrupted by the tragedies of war -- with moving, humane eloquence. "The stories I have tried to tell here are true," says Glasser in his foreword. "Those that happened in Japan I was part of; the rest are from the boys I met. I would have liked to disbelieve some of them, and at first I did, but I was there long enough to hear the same stories again and again, and then to see part of it myself." Assigned to Zama, an Army hospital in Japan in September 1968, Glasser arrived as a pediatrician in the U.S. Army Medical Corps to care for the children of officers and high-ranking government officials. The hospital's main mission, however, was to support the war and care for the wounded -- on average six to eight thousand patients per month.
