This book presents Vietnam veterans' 1970 testimony about their personal participation in what they describe as everyday atrocities in the war.

Excerpts from the book

"It is our hope that the American people will come to realize that war crimes in Vietnam are not isolated, aberrant acts but the inevitable result of a policy which in its direction of waging war against the civilians, Vietnamese civilians, is in itself immoral and criminal."
– Robert Master

"Gooks were gooks and you killed them. That's what they were for. So we did it. It didn't really bother me at the time. It didn't bother me until I started thinking what really happened."
– Phil Wigenbach
