The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War
We Gotta Get Out of This Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War – Part II
This week we will be listening to the music written and performed by veterans.
In We Gotta Get Out of This Place, Doug Bradley and Craig Werner place popular music at the heart of the American experience in Vietnam. We will be exploring how and why U.S. troops turned to music as a way of connecting to each other and the World back home and of coping with the complexities of the war they had been sent to fight. They also demonstrate that music was important for every group of Vietnam veterans―black and white, Latino and Native American, men and women, officers and “grunts”―whose personal reflections drive the book’s narrative. Many of the voices are those of ordinary soldiers, airmen, seamen, and marines.
