which has been written. A particular strength of the book is that it places the war and the movement against it within an international context. The author's attention to fact and detail (the book is well footnoted) recreate the mood and the political battles of the movement's conferences and debates. Like almost all of the real leaders of the antiwar movement, Fred Halstead, is an unknown name when the antiwar movement is discussed in the press and media.

Halstead recounts the horror of students being shot down by National Guardsmen at Kent State University ( They aren’t using blanks! ), and of the teach-ins initiated by college faculty, then later student strikes that spread like wildfire across the USA. Later, Richard Nixon drew up his enemies list and pretended that he still held the support of the silent majority of Americans.

Great book was only disappointed that it came from the Boise Idaho City public library that should have retained it for others to read. Seems the library ink and paper glued on the outside and inside of the book are permanent, and why I could not post a higher star, due to condition. But the price was great and shipped quickly and professionally - so recommend.

This book by Fred Halstead is the most detailed and accurate account of the movement against the war in Viet Nam in the U.S. which has been written. A particular strength of the book is that it places the war and the movement against it within an international context. The author's attention to fact and detail (the book is well footnoted) recreate the mood and the political battles of the movement's conferences and debates. This book is a good starting place for a person who knew nothing about the anti-war movement or the 60's and early 70's. It is essential for anyone studying the war in Viet Nam. It is a particularly useful book for those looking to learn how a powerful political movement can be built.
Halstead's discussion of the debates within the civil rights organizations and unions is an important contribution.
This book though stands above all others in it's treatment of the anti-war organizing of active duty G.I.s and Viet Nam veterens. G.I.s were an essential componant of the movement. These sections of the book are among it's strongest and are an antidote to both liberal and conservative views of the war.
Finally, Halstead states that he has an opinion. A member of the Socialist Workers Party he was a key player in the events he recounts. Because of his honesty and fairness this is a strength of the book, rather than a weakness.

Like almost all of the real leaders of the antiwar movement, Fred Halstead, is an unknown name when the antiwar movement is discussed in the press and media. He was a respected figure across the movement by people who agreed and disagreed with him, an an important leader who helped chart a central political course for the movement, often selected to negotiate with the government and police in the biggest demonstrations of the 1960s and 1970s. He also was an experience revolutionary working class militant with experiences going back to the antiwar struggles of GIs and sailors at the end
of WWII. His history is the only decent political history of the struggle against the Vietnam war, and the only political analysis that is useful. It is written not as nostalgia, not as memoir, not as history for academics, but written so future generations of fighters against war, for workers, for women, for Blacks, Chicanos, and other oppressed people can use it to deepen their fights and win the way the antiwar movement did. The pictures in the newest editions of this book are so good that I bought it even though I had the book since it came out.
