Vietnam doesn't go away. "Turse lays open the ground-level reality of a war that was far more atrocious than Americans at home have ever been allowed to know. He exposes official policies that encouraged ordinary American soldiers and airmen to inflict almost unimaginable horror and suffering on ordinary Vietnamese, followed by official cover-up.Kill Anything That Moves is obligatory reading for Americans, because its implications for the likely scale of atrocities and civilian casualties inflicted and covered up in our latest wars are inescapable and staggering.
                 Daniel Ellsberg

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

This deeply disturbing book provides the fullest documentation yet of the brutality and ugliness that marked America's war in Vietnam. No doubt some will charge Nick Turse with exaggeration or overstatement. Yet the evidence he has assembled is irrefutable.
                 Andrew J. Bacevich, Col, U.S.Army (Ret)

Nick Turse is a journalist, historian, managing editor for TomDispatch.com, and a fellow at the Nation Institute.

His investigations of U.S. war crimes in Vietnam have gained him a Ridenhour Prize for Reportorial Distinction, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a fellowship at Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

Phillip Butler, PhD, is a 1961 graduate of the United States Naval Academy and a former  light-attack carrier pilot. In 1965 he was shot down over North Vietnam, where he spent
eight years as a prisoner of war. A combat veteran awarded two Silver Stars, two Legion of Merits, two Bronze Stars and two Purple Heart medals, Butler is now a peace and justice activist with Veterans for Peace.
