DAVID CORTWRIGHT was enlisted in the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1971. He is president of the Fourth Freedom Forum and a research fellow at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, and is the author or editor of twelve books, including "A Peaceful Superpower: The Movement Against War in Iraq."

"This fine study, combining scrupulous scholarship with the sharp insights of a highly informed participant-observer, was the first to explore in-depth the processes of disaffaction, organized opposition, and resistance that undermined U.S. military forces attacking Indochina, and their far-reaching consequences. It remains today the most penetrating and revealing investigation and analysis of these remarkable developments, with current implications that are all too evident." Noam Chomsky
"An invaluable account of a uniquely American that helped to bring the Vietnam War to an end. This book restores an important chapter o our living history." Tod Ensign, director of Citizen Soldier and author of "America's Military Today"

"An exhaustive account of rebellion in all the armed forces, not only in Vietnam but throughout the world...Perhaps Cortwright's most important conclusion is that most of the GI resistance came not from draftees but from volunteers from working class backgrounds." N.Y. Review of Books
