I Am the War Book Description:

I Am the War began as a collection of Vietnam memories as told by a Marine combat photographer. After 17 years, it was the first chance he'd ever had to talk to anyone about his war. As he spoke, two wars emerged: the remembered tour in Vietnam and a more horrible, unremembered war that boiled up from his subconscious. This book records his journey down the dark twisting trails of Vietnam's jungles and of his own mind, through combat and catastrophe in Southeast Asia, through delayed stress, jail and madness back home. The book also recounts how remembering can heal a reluctant warrior's tortured soul. Lori Varosh is an award-winning 25-year veteran of the newspaper business, who spent most of her career as a reporter and editor at the Bellevue (WA) Journal American. Jim Hallas spent 33 years as an award-winning photojournalist, including stints with the Portland Oregonian as a staffer and with the Journal American as a shooter and director of photography .
