Title:  Thoughts, Memories And Tears: An Anthology of War, Death and Remembrance

Author: Peter S. Griffin

Publisher:  Joyce Enterprise

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder

More Than Poetry & Prose

Peter S, Griffin has created so much more than just a collection of his prose and memories of the Vietnam War in his book “Thoughts, Memories And Tears: An Anthology of War, Death and Remembrance.” This large volume puts on exhibit his very naked soul and expresses what is in both his heart and mind.

It is not just an enthralling anthology of the various parts of Griffin’s life experiences dealing with the war but also contains memories and tributes to his brothers, one of whom was killed in action in Korea. The book touches all aspects of being a Vietnam veteran—from combat and losses of friends to PTSD and coming back home.

The book is at times an inward and compassionate look at a young soldier’s heart. It is an interesting look at how those experiences changed the very spiritual fabric of his soul. Veteran readers will certainly be able to identify with the prose. Those who have never served will find it an emotional education. The book contains photos, data, drawings, poetry, and lots of thought provoking words. It is a time capsule of that emotional period in our nation’s history.

The author writes with cold hard honesty and reflects on events that made a lasting impact on his life. It is well worth reading and also gifting to others. The format is easy to read and follow but the reader may have to pause every few pages to get both their breath and emotions back in check. I enjoyed reading it and think others will as well.
