Round Eyes is a fictional attempt to explain what has, to many, remained an incomprehensible war. It is based on historical facts of the Vietnam War and actual people, as seen through the eyes of combat servicemen from all branches, but also their wives, parents, children, and friends. Additionally, it is perhaps the first novel about the airline flight crews who volunteered to transport these combat troops to and from Vietnam. An American civilianas attempt to deliver medical supplies to the United States prisoners of war in North Vietnam is also detailed, beginning with his charter of three Braniff International Airlines aircraft with all-volunteer crews. Round Eyes attempts to explain how our nation came of age during the Vietnam years, and how we are changed because of it. From foot soldiers plodding through the jungles, dust-off helicopter pilots ferrying the wounded to hospital units in safe areas, fighter pilots securing the air space, to doctors and nurses working in camps or on hospital ships, to the airline pilots and flight attendants who brought the troops back home, Round Eyes gives the reader an overview of living and dying in Vietnam.
