Beyond Dark Clouds
Beyond Dark Clouds is about male and female Vietnam veterans, their spouses and children from Australia, America and New Zealand. Stories have been expertly constructed from hundreds of hours of interviews over several decades. The author, himself a Vietnam veteran, has brilliantly brought together the stories to give a comprehensive, balanced and candid insight into two generations of families before during and after the Vietnam War.
Dr Glen D. Edwards left school at the age of fourteen and later served in the Australian Army as a National Serviceman, and then as a Regular Soldier, serving as a medic in Vietnam. The Vietnam experience and events that followed in his life prompted Glen to write the best selling book, Vietnam: The War Within. Glen’s book tells the stories of Australian, American, and New Zealand Vietnam veterans as they were before, during, and after their service in Vietnam. The much anticipated sequel to this book, entitled Beyond Dark Clouds, tells how the lives of these veterans and their families have played out. The two books vividly show the long-term cost of war, stress and trauma in raw human terms as it relates to individuals across generations.
