Reviews

"Kyle Longley has produced something all too rare in the field of military history, not only a work that focuses on the soul of warfare--the reality of young men and their lives in a brutal environment--but also a work that eloquently addresses many of the main historiographical themes of the conflict, from race, to class, to societal motivation."--Andrew Wiest, author of The Boys of '67: Charlie Company's War in Vietnam"A powerful, compelling story. Longley's The Morenci Marines illuminates the devastating impact of war on a small town."--George C. Herring, author of America's Longest War: The United States and Vietnam "The Vietnam War touched the lives of many working class American communities, but none more than a small town in rural Arizona. Longley tells the gripping story of nine high school graduates, caught up in a wave of patriotic idealism, who became known as the 'Morenci Nine.' The story of those nine Marines, two-thirds of whom died in the flower of youth, is forever woven into the fabric of the close-knit mining town."--Marshall Trimble, author of Roadside History of Arizona "A well-researched and poignant narrative about young men from an Arizona mining community going, fighting, and some of them dying in the Vietnam War."--Journal of Arizona History
