Today: Nick Turse, author of Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam, will discuss his best-selling 2013 book with hosts Eric Schubring and Ed Garvey. Award-winning writer Turse is managing editor for TomDispatch.com and a fellow at the Nation Institute. His new book chronicles for the first time the systematic atrocities resulting in millions of civilian deaths and woundings during the American War in Vietnam which officially ended in 1975, the year the author was born. Nick Turse's live conversation on Fighting Bob Radio preceeds by two days the 45th anniversary of the My Lai massacre, when American soldiers murdered more than 500 men, women, and children. The My Lai massacre is emblematic of the rest of the story told by Turse following his investigations into long-suppressed war crimes and visits to rural Vietnam where civilians suffered and died at the hands of American soldiers acting out the official policies of their war leaders.
