Nick Turse

For anyone who studies war crimes in Vietnam, there’s one person who stands above all others: Seymour Hersh.  One of the greatest investigative reporters of our time, he blew the lid off the My Lai massacre and changed the way we understand the Vietnam War.  You can imagine how I felt when he offered this blurb for for my next book, Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam.  What an honor.

“Nick Turse reminds us again, in this painful and important book, why war should always be a last resort, and especially wars that have little to do with American national security. We failed, as Turse makes clear, to deal after the Vietnam War with the murders that took place, and today—four decades later—the lessons have yet to be learned. We still prefer kicking down doors to talking.” —Seymour Hersh, staff writer, The New Yorker
