In this touching and often humorous account, a son visits Vietnam with his father, a veteran of the war that continues to shape U.S. foreign policy to this day. The story recounts events from the senior Bissell's experience in the war as the pair return to important locations in the once troubled nation. Including interviews and accounts of the offspring of individuals on both sides of the conflict, the narration is handled nicely by a small cast of readers, headlined by narrator Kerin McCue. McCue is unwavering in his delivery, bringing the realistic touch that this poignant memoir deserves while never coming off as preachy or long-winded. A very personal story with a very international approach. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
