This book examines the change in the narrative film image of the returned Vietnam veteran over time, from its initial appearance in the mid-1960s to the early 1990s. Vietnam veterans have appeared as characters in dozens of narrative feature films, from Billy Jack to Wild at Heart. These films are the primary resources of this study, and the book contains both a filmography of these films and a filmography of films set in Vietnam during the conflict (together by far the most comprehensive the author is aware of), as well as a bibliography of the period under examination.
