review Goodbye, Vietnam William Broyles Jr. ð 7 Free download Free download Goodbye, Vietnam 107 In this gripping memoir a former marine returns to Vietnam to try to make sense of the war Previously published as Brothers in Arms this edition includes a new preface by the authorWhen William Broyles Jr was drafted he was a twenty four year old student at Oxford University in England hoping to avoid military service During his physical exam however he realized that he couldn't let social class or education give him special privileges He joined the marines and soon commanded an infantry platoon in the foothills n. A short mostly satisfying read but alas having not read it until 2018 it very much felt like a period piece I can t say it s one of my favorite Vietnam books but it was well worth reading and it felt uite genuine My hat s off to Broyles for in the 1980 s being part of the vanguard of vets that returned to Vietnam and given how often vets visit today in that context the book is all the jarringHaving said that and again this is all about timing Broyles returned to Vietnam literally decades before I visited for the first time and while over two trips I covered much of the same ground the country is a very different place today in terms of government economy transportation accessibility tourism industry etc Of course and this is no small thing I never served in Vietnam and while my father was there earlier further South and as a senior officer than Broyles I can t compare his combatservice experiences I can say that when my father returned to Vietnam the first and only time during my first trip his experience had little or nothing in common with Broyles experience even though we trod many of the same paths But of course that s context and it takes nothing away from the bookAfter a couple of visits my sense today is that Vietnam is one of the great tourist values on the planet the countryside is beautiful the area is rich in history not all of it pleasant the food is exuisitedelicious and the higher end hotelsresorts are simply splendid But the one thing that does not appear to have changed and what seems to Broyles to have been the biggest surprise or eye opener is that the Vietnamese are incredibly kind and gracious and welcoming hosts to American veterans and tourists which still seems counter intuitive but it is what it isBroyles is obviously a thoughtful observer and commentator and his prose for the most part is efficient clear and evocative No doubt it was a hard book to write and accordingly it s easy to forgive his periodic excesses and dramatic turnsdetoursdigressions Moreover this was a very different slice of his life Decades ago my image of Broyles was dominated by his being a Rice University alumni and having been the founding editor of Texas Monthly magazine and I never really thought of him as a TV and film guy but in any event this book puts his life and work in a very different perspectiveParticularly given how slender the volume is and how uicklyeasily it reads I recommend it without hesitation Let s be clear this is in almost every way the antithesis of Karl Marlantes modern and popular and while thinly veiled fictional tomb Matterhorn Having said that I was struck by how much Broyles and Marlantes had in common when they arrived in Vietnam but how dramatically their lives diverged upon their return But that s a topic for another day
