514Zskr4wrL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_.jpgDr. Edward Hagan, a highly-esteemed writing professor at Western Connecticut State University, recently published his first memoir called To Vietnam in Vain: Memoir of an Irish-American Intelligence Advisor.

He points out that it doesn’t follow the conventional narrative and believes Vietnam to be an “important part of contemporary consciousness.”

Hagan served in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970 as a U.S. advisor to the South Vietnamese Regional and Popular Forces in the Mekong Delta. He knew such events that occurred needed to belong on paper.

“World War II is the conventional war in the minds of many,” Hagan noted.

Many people consider Pearl Harbor as the U.S. entry into the war, but “major events had already taken place,” he continued.

Hagan has authored and co-authored many books and written numerous articles on war literature and Irish literature.

For a copy of his memoir, go to Amazon or to your nearest bookstore.
