Come and join Revolution Books in welcoming Deborah Nelson as she discusses her new book, "The War Behind Me: Vietnam Veterans Confront the Truth About U.S. War Crimes" . When the Abu Ghraib scandal broke in 2003, the nation was shocked, and the specter of the U.S. government as torturer was put before millions. Many were forced to reconsider their view of America. Land of the free? Home of the brave? But Deborah Nelson’s new book shows that Abu Ghraib is far from an isolated case perpetrated by a small group of rogue soldiers. According to a new book by Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Deborah Nelson, large scale cover-ups of U.S. war crimes are a part of our history. In THE WAR BEHIND ME: Vietnam Veterans Confront the Truth about U.S. War Crimes (Basic Books; Hardcover; Pub date: November 2008), Nelson reveals for the first time a massive cover-up of Vietnam war crimes that have remained hidden for more than thirty years. Nelson will be joined by Jamie Henry, a veteran who spoke out against the atrocities he witnessed in Vietnam and testified at the Winter Soldier Investigation in 1971.
