Now I see that the war that is the focus of the War Through the Generations Challenge this year is the Vietnam War. I almost didn't sign up, thinking that I had read almost all of the Vietnam related books on my shelves (many during the aforementioned class) but after an online search, I found some more books I already own that will hopefully conform to the guidelines of this one in that the primary or secondary theme must be the Vietnam War. Since I have read through so many already, I plan to only try to hit the "A Dip" level of five books.
Here's a potential list:
1. The Time In Between by David Bergen
2. For Rouenna by Sigrid Nunez
3. Lizzie’s War by Tim Farrington
4. In the River Sweet by Patricia Henley
5. Shrapnel in the Heart by Laura Palmer
extras: Snake’s Daughter by Gail Hosking Gilberg, Falling Through the Earth by Danielle Trussoni, Paradise of the Blind by Duong Thu Huong, Rules for Old Men Waiting by Peter Pouncey
The latter two of the extras may not fit the guidelines but they did come up on some of the lists of Vietnam War fiction I found so they will remain as extras until I find out otherwise.
