Item description for Fish Heads, Rice, Rice Wine & War: A Vietnam Paradox by Tom Smith...

Seeded in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam during 1966-1969, Fish Heads, Rice, Rice Wine & War: A Vietnam Paradox, draws on the human, yet humorous side of the strangest and most misunderstood war ever, in which American soldiers were committed.

Fish heads cooked with rice and accompanied with rice wine are the basic staples in the day-to-day lives of Montagnard natives. Equally, these staples were the subject of many jokes, songs and 'the day after the night before' headaches, as well as more than average the number of trips to the latrine for those of us who lived among them.

Without intent to remove the callousness of war itself, Fish Heads, Rice, Rice Wine & War: A Vietnam Paradox is an effort to have the reader recognize that even in the midst of deplorable conditions and carrying out an undefined combat mission, Americans by their very nature are a fun-loving, compassionate, joking people---war being merely and aside in which they find themselves thrown. Even when they find themselves involved in the blood and guts of war, soldiers will always find the means to laugh. After all, laughter lends sanity when there's nothing else left.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fish Heads, Rice, Rice Wine & War: A Vietnam Paradox?

Refreshing!  May 31, 2003
Tom Smith did a fabulous job of showing us the human side of a controversial war. He tells how it was from an insiders point of view and in a very easy to read manner. It is refreshing to see that soldiers, even in times of war, are able to stay in touch with their needs ... are able to laugh a little ... and not be consumed by their surroundings.

I was sucked into this book from the very first chapter...I could tell this wasn't your ordinary "take my side" coverage of the war. No hidden agenda's, just experiences relayed. I loved it!

fish heads rice rice wine and war  Nov 13, 2002
this was a very interesting book written in an easy reading style. he was not trying to put any pressure to like or dislike the war, he was just telling you how it was for him and his feeling then and now. he seems to be a real patriot and a true american that was trying to do the best job he could do for his men and his country.
