"I really thought I'd tried to put Vietnam behind me, but it was like a piece of shrapnel, working its way to the surface. . . . Going back there, it completed the circle for me." shares William Broyles of his return trip in 1984.

Broyles, former editor of Newsweek and founder of Texas Monthly, spent four weeks in Vietnam visiting familiar sites from his days as a combat Marine—interviewing mountain tribesmen, fishermen, Communist Party officials, academics, and former members of the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army. He captures his journey in Goodbye Vietnam—formerly Brothers in Arms and the inspiration for the Emmy-winning TV show, China Beach.
