Curriculum Guide for What It Is Like to Go to War,by Karl Marlantes. Made possible by a partnership between Cal Humanities and. the California History Social Science Project,Overview of Cal Humanities War Comes Home. and California Reads, War Comes Home is Cal Humanities new statewide effort to engage Californians in thinking. about what it means to come home from war not only for veterans but for all of us. As our long combat commitments in Afghanistan and Iraq wind down we believe this is an. important moment in which to pause to reflect on the momentous societal changes that are. occurring as thousands of veterans resume civilian life and to consider how returning service. members will rejoin their communities How will veterans those who bear the direct. consequences of what it means to engage in war as well as their parents wives husbands. children relatives and friends create a new sense of home How can we create a shared. understanding of what it s like to go to war What obligations do we have to those who serve in. the name of our national defense What can we learn from the past to understand the. challenges faced by today s returning service men and women How can we all welcome. veterans home in a way that is helpful and meaningful to all of us. This year Cal Humanities and its partners will provide opportunities for Californians to explore. these questions through hundreds of community events forums book discussion groups. exhibits and interactive web events across the state The Cal Humanities website. www calhum org will be an online hub for activities where you can learn more and share what. you have discovered, California Reads is a program of Cal Humanities conducted in partnership with the.

Directions Read the overview of the war in Vietnam. and answer the questions in the text as you come upon. The war in Vietnam was not fought on traditional, battlefields with clearly identified soldiers seizing new. territory Instead the war was fought with different. weapons markers of success and consequences than, previous wars Military planners on both sides of the. conflict initially hoped to achieve quick success through. strategic attacks on the enemy While early on, operations did inflict damage on their opponents both. sides ultimately settled into a war of attrition a series.

American Military Strategy, The United States for example hoped to defeat North. Vietnam through massive bombing campaigns such as,Operation Rolling Thunder Starting in early 1965. American planes began to drop what would eventually. total 4 6 million tons of bombs onto North Vietnam as. well on the Ho Chi Minh Trail a supply line that the. communists used to transport people and goods from. the north to the south American commanders,intended the campaign to demoralize the Communist. soldiers and compliment U S grounds troops When,President Richard Nixon took office in 1969 he. employed a secret plan to end the war which expanded. the American air campaign He began a secret bombing. campaign in the neighboring countries of Laos and,Cambodia sovereign nations separate from Vietnam. in an effort to attack the communist forces hiding in.

Another tactic the U S employed was the use of defoliants and herbicides on the.

ANSWER KEY, 1 Fighting affected soldiers because it was hard to discern the enemy. 2 There are multiple possible answers for perspectives about the strategy but. students should grasp the on the ground challenges as well as the larger. tactical and moral dilemmas, 3 Gaining support of local people would be challenging because they. simultaneously needed to patrol them locate enemies and align themselves. with friendly locals, 4 Students should understand that the strategies of fighting made it difficult for. American soldiers to define success locate the enemy and engage in more. conventional forms of combat, 5 Students should come away with an understanding of the fact that the. American loss in Vietnam could have had an effect on soldiers It could have. made them regret the war think it was not worth fighting in or simply. depressed about having sacrificed so greatly, California Reads War Comes Home Curriculum Guide Cal Humanities California History Social Science Project.

Karl Marlantes Experiences War, Directions Read the background and three excerpts below then answer the questions. in order to understand what it was like to be a combat soldier in Vietnam. Background The following excerpts are from a memoir by Karl Marlantes called What. It Is Like to go to War He wrote this book to reflect on his experiences as a young. American soldier who was sent to fight in Vietnam In the book he describes what it was. like to be a soldier fighting against communists in Vietnam but he also explains the cost. of war on himself his fellow soldiers and on American society overall. EXCERPT 1 The least,acknowledged aspect of war today. is how exhilarating it is This aspect,makes people very uncomfortable. The hard truth is that ever since I,can remember I have loved thinking. about war and I wasn t the only,one I played it in the woods with. my friends I read about it and,people wrote what I read I saw it in. movies and people filmed what I,saw In Vietnam there were times. when I swelled with pride at the,immense destruction I could deal. out There is a deep savage joy in, destruction a joy beyond ego Vietnam memorial soldiers by Frederick Hart Washington D C Digital.

Copyright 2014 The Regents of the University of California All Rights Reserved. EXCERPT 2 A week before he was due to go,home my friend Mike committed a real read. about it with horror in the papers red heat,atrocity After more than a year in Vietnam he d. seen a lot of combat and lost friends Mike s,squad had been assigned to protect a small. village One day he captured a Viet Cong, guerrilla near a village where just a week earlier. Mike had lost several friends to land mines The,prisoner like Mike was around eighteen or. twenty He had been captured loaded with land,mines There was no doubt about his or his. unit s intentions When you step directly on a,land mine the explosion often kills you by going. up between your legs The survivors have to look,around for missing pieces and make sure they get. thrown into the poncho with the body so you get,all of your pieces buried in the same place. Mike decided not to turn the prisoner over to the,usual authorities the South Vietnamese military. no paragons virtuous models of human rights, Photograph of Private First Class Russell R He kept the prisoner to interrogate himself The. Widdifield in Vietnam 1969 Source National rational purpose for this so called interrogation. Archives ARC Identifier 532493 was to find out where the prisoner s unit was and. where they were setting booby traps or perhaps, ambushes in order to avoid any more casualties to Mike s squad But as Mike told me. later he simply lost it He was filled with rage, Mike kept the kid for a day beating him until he grew too tired to beat him further He. would then rest up fly into another rage and beat him some more In Mike s own. words I beat him to a pulp He then hung the kid upside down from a flagpole. hoisting him in view of the entire village to let the village know what Marines did to VC. who killed Marines, The prisoner was seen hanging from the flagpole by an American Army unit who got. him out of Mike s hands Fortunately for both of them the prisoner lived Mike was. tried busted back to private and discharged without honor He has had to live with the. fact that after months of honorable and difficult service he certainly had lost it and this. was his sad return to America Mike now has a wife kids and a steady job in the upper. management levels of a large corporation,This act haunts Mike still He did it It happened.
