Description - The Year I Said Goodbye by Peter Winter
Platoon commander Peter Winter was a career soldier who went to Vietnam in 1970 with ambitions of advancement and promotion. The experience of war resulted in upheaval, anger with the Moratorium movement back home, and a general feeling of isolation from the rest of his countrymen. Each day, he would write home to his family to tell of his emotions and opinions. This compilation of those letters, a soldier's personal war, is gripping reading for anyone who was there, or who has an interest in the Vietnam War. Peter Winter was called up for National Service in 1965 in the 'first ballot'. He remained in the army until 1986 when, having reached the rank of major, he resigned.
'The Year I Said Goodbye is a marvelous chronicle of an exhilarating and poignant year of separation and longing, of anticipation and nostalgia.' - Lynne Cosgrove
