From Our Editors

The Vietnam War is a difficult subject for many people and especially for Americans. In 1967, Ward Just was a young correspondent writing for the Washington Post in Vietnam. It was there and then that he wrote To What End to critical acclaim. Now, more than 30 years later, the book is being rereleased with a new forward by the author as an older and wiser man. His personal accounts of the complicated situation, analysis of American involvement and questioning of political motives were hailed as truthful and insightfull. Although some of his opinions have changed and some have remained the same, the book is still sad, beautiful and ultimately thought-provoking.
