Gutman Library Book Talk: 100 Days in Vietnam: A Memoir of Love, War, and Survival

Date: 

Wednesday, November 10, 2021, 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Harvard Graduate School of Education—Online

Painstakingly recreated from wartime letters and remembrances and contextualized by contemporary news accounts, 100 Days in Vietnam is a collaboration between Joe and his son Matthew A. Tallon, Ed.M.'09, Administrative Director of Faculty Support Services at HGSE, also an Army veteran.

Here we experience the war through the emotions of the man who survived it: the drudgery and monotony of airfield life, the heartache of a newlywed missing his wife, the terror of combat missions, the agony of injury and rehabilitation, and the bittersweet relief from the completion of his final mission to bring recognition to his fallen comrade.
