Vietnam Warrior Voices: Caputo, Del Vecchio, Butler, O’Brien, Mark H. Massé, 2017

Exploring post-traumatic growth as a result of the Vietnam War, author Mark H. Massé interviews veterans Philip Caputo, John Del Vecchio, Robert Olen Butler, and Tim O’Brien on the effect that the war played in their lives and in their writing. Massé delivers a brief but insightful compilation of interviews on the craft of writing, particularly on the catharsis of putting pen to paper. These veterans, through their own personal reflections on the hardships they endured, provide a seminal understanding of history and the impact of human nature on the course of the former.
