Today on Your Call: What Does The Vietnam War Reveal About the US Military?



On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Nick Turse, author of “Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam.” Turse argues that violence against Vietnamese noncombatants was not exceptional. It was pervasive and systematic. 30,000 books have been written about Vietnam. What do we still need to know about that war? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.


Guests:


Nick Turse, a historian, journalist, essayist and the associate editor and research director of the Nation Institute's Tomdispatch.com
