An unbiased examination of the My Lai massacre, its moral and political implications and effects, the role of the press, literary approaches to atrocity, placing it in historical perspective, the law of war, individuals and trauma, military lessons learned, and healing the wounds.

An excellent and non-judgmental examination of My Lai within the social context of the time as well as today. Highly recommended.
