Guest: Elizabeth Partridge, Author, “Boots on the Ground” Fifty years ago, the US was deeply embroiled in the Vietnam War and protests were roiling here at home. Teenagers today are likely to be the grandchildren of soldiers who fought in Vietnam. What do they know of the war and how it shaped the world they live in today? Elizabeth Partridge came of age during the Vietnam War and has written a book for young adults about the conflict called “Boots on the Ground.” It looks at the war from the perspective of the young men and women who fought and died in it.
