Show synopsis In his prize-winning memoir, "Reconciliation Road," John Marshall recounts a road trip around America in search of the truth about his famous grandfather General S. L. A. (Slam) Marshall, author of "Pork Chop Hill." In the process he comes to terms with his own past and that of others whose families were torn apart by the Vietnam War. "This is a remarkable story that threads a man's search for the truth about his grandfather into a call for reconciliation between individuals and generations, between history and our own lives, between the men who fought the Vietnam war and all the rest of us for whose sins they suffered. . . . Read this for the peace offering it is."--Bill Moyers "A notably dignified and heartfelt and wise life's account"--Richard Ford "This poignant book . . . is an important contribution to the rich literature of the Vietnam War."--David Halberstam, "Washington Post Book World" "A modest and searching memoir of self-discovery . . . often moving, aiming unerringly for political and personal reconciliation in the still-unsettled aftermath of the war in Vietnam." "--New York Times Book Review" ""Reconciliation Road" is one of those rare books that purports to tell a straightforward tale but in its own subversive way tackles issues of major import. . . . This book succeeds on several levels . . . leaves indelible marks upon the reader." "--Chicago Tribune" "A fascinating portrait of General Marshall emerges, interwoven with events from the turbulent Sixties and the author's yearning for reconciliation; highly recommended.""--Library Journal"
