'All the important lessons of Vietnam are here in this fine and varied collection of plays, in forms that enable the lessons to be felt and understood totally with the heart and soul, as well as with the mind… The playwright becomes more important than the historian, for in no other war of our history was the private word more important than the public pronouncement.'
