Being Taken

Item Description

An exposure taken on the battlefield turns an American soldier into a prisoner of war who can never be free. During the height of the Vietnam War, the Army resorted to a bait-and-switch scam that recruited thousands of unsuspecting college graduates into its combat ranks. This is the story of two of its victims who join to become signal officers but must serve in the infantry, a fate that turns their beloved diplomas into one-way tickets to the jungles of Vietnam. Their misfortunes--Nello lugging a 25-pound radio on his back and Eliot writing military propaganda in Saigon--lead them down different paths, one becoming a war hero, the other a casualty of war.
