Three stories of war – about those who went missing those who returned and those trying to make sense of it all – are told with realism in The Vietnam Trilogy.
Pompano Beach, FL, US., April 17, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - The Vietnam Trilogy, a new historical fiction by author and Vietnam veteran Walter C. Kuhlman, gives a realistic and dramatic glimpse inside the struggles during and after the war. The newly released book is published by Outskirts Press.
The Vietnam Trilogy unfolds in three riveting plays. Survivor is the story of a man who makes it through the intense combat in Vietnam only to be relentlessly haunted by the experience and racked with guilt, years after returning home. The war still exists within him as he goes down a precipitous path of self-destruction.
The Innocents of War tells the story of the family of a soldier who is missing in action, whose uncertain fate plays out on each family member differently over the 20-plus years after his disappearance. In the end, harsh reality takes a surprising twist.
Rap depicts combat veterans struggling to sort out their lives, years after their return home. Through group therapy, they try to make sense of readjusting from the combat zone to civilian life. For many of the men, it’s difficult – for some, it’s impossible.
There is a complex tapestry woven from the characters in each play, showing how war can affect each individual emotionally, mentally and physically. Veterans will be able to relate to the aftereffects of combat, and those who haven’t experienced it will walk away with a clearer understanding of the impact of the war experience on both the soldiers and their families. The Vietnam Trilogy presents a realistic view of the men who fought, the ones who died, and the ones who were psychologically scarred by the war.
