Overview

    In Stories of Faith and Courage from the Vietnam War Larkin Spivey shows real people fighting and living through a difficult conflict and confusing era of American history. His stories are presented in a daily devotional format with scripture readings each day, revealing the amazing ways in which God acts to empower believers and answer doubts. Every person of faith will come closer to God through these pages, and religious skeptics will see many of their own questions explored in depth.
    Spivey also presents a concise history of the Vietnam War with overviews, maps, and photographs to give new insights into why America fought this war and how American, Allied, and South Vietnamese warriors in effect won it on the battlefield. Each month a different aspect of the conflict is emphasized, including the history after World War II, early U. S. involvement, guerilla fighting, conventional warfare, civic action, the Tet Offensive, Vietnamization, prisoners of war, air and helicopter operations, and finally, the long post-war road to reconciliation for Vietnam veterans.
    By combining the drama of front line action with the broader historical context of the conflict Spivey gives a picture of war and combat unavailable in other histories. Indexes enable readers to search stories by name or topic, including a wide range of life issues such as addiction, anger, anxiety, doubt, fear, forgiveness, hearing and understanding God, hope, leadership, miracles, post traumatic stress, salvation, suffering, trust, and much more. Readers can find stories specifically relating to corpsmen, medics, children, prisoners of war, missing in action, nurses, refugees, wives, women, and many other relevant topics.
