As a journalist, Paxton Andrews would experiencenbsp;nbsp;Vietnam firsthand. We follow her from high school in Savannah tonbsp;nbsp;college in Berkeley and then to work in Saigon.

For the soldiers shenbsp;nbsp;knew and met there, Viet Nam would change theirnbsp;nbsp;lives in ways they could never have imagined. For the mennbsp;nbsp;in her life, Viet Nam would change their lives in ways hey could notnbsp;nbsp;escape or deny. Peternbsp;nbsp;Wilson, fresh from law school, was a new recruitnbsp;nbsp;who would confont his fate in Da Nang. Ralphnbsp;nbsp;Johnson, a seasoned AP correspondent, had been innbsp;nbsp;Saigon since the beginning. He knew Vietnam and thenbsp;nbsp;war inside out. Bill Quinn, captain of the Cu Chinbsp;nbsp;tunnel rats, was on his fourth tour of duty and itnbsp;nbsp;seemed nothing could touch him. Sergeant Tonynbsp;nbsp;Campobello had come to Vietnam from the streets ofnbsp;nbsp;New York to vent a rage that had followed him all the way to Saigon.nbsp;nbsp;

For seven yearsnbsp;nbsp;Paxton Andrews would write an acclaimed newspapernbsp;nbsp;column from the front before finally returning to thenbsp;nbsp;States and then attending the Paris peace talks.nbsp;nbsp;But for her and the men who fought in Viet Nam,nbsp;nbsp;life would never be the same again.
