GI Guinea Pigs: How the Pentagon Exposed Our Troops to Dangers Deadlier than War, by Michael Uhl and Tod Ensign.
How the Pentagon exposed our troops to dangers more deadly than war: agent orange and atomic radiation. GI Guinea Pigs paints a shocking picture of how the US military wantonly exposed thousands of its own men to toxic levels of radiation and herbicides. With a broad brush it outlines the social and political landscape, and highlights this with the fine detail of tragic personal stories from many GIs. Uhl and Ensign understand not only the struggles and suffering of the veterans of atomic bomb testing and Agent Orange, but also the historical background which enables us to place these stories in perspective.
