The innocence of the 1950s and turbulence of the 1960s and 1970s--years when America reached out and touched the heavens only to be torn apart by internal conflice and a war in Southeast Asia--provide a dramatic setting for this unforgettable story of three men and the women they love, carving a place for themselves in a nation of change. We experience their passions, tragedies, and triumphs as they take stock in their lives, their country, and the cost of success. From the wars in Korea and Vietnam to antiwar protests in Washington and POW camps in Hanoi, from young love and parenthood to divorce and reconciliation, this stunning sage of America over three decades of twentieth century delivers all the power James Webb has exhibited in his other highly acclaimed novels, and this one might be more important today than when it was first published in 1983.
