In Country: Marvel Comics’ “The ‘Nam” — Episode 15

Nam 14After taking a look at The Things They Carried, it’s time to return to The ‘Nam with issue #14, “Fatigue Duty.”  We spend our first issue after Ed Marks’s departure getting to know some of the other boys of the 23rd courtesy of Doug Murray and Wayne VanSant.  As always, in addition to the summary and review of the issue I’ll be talking about the story’s historical context as well as taking a look at the letters, ‘Nam Notes, and ads.

Also, here is a link to The History Place, which is one of the resources I have been using for some of the historical notes in this episode:  The History Place
