Killed In Action: The Life and Times of SP4 Stephen H. Warner, Draftee, Journalist and Anti-War Activist
Killed In Action is a historical account of the Vietnam Era told through the life of SP4 Stephen H. Warner, an anti-war activist who was drafted in 1969 after finishing his first year at Yale Law School. After induction into the Army, Steve remained bitterly opposed to the Vietnam War. However, when sent to Vietnam as a public information specialist, he repeatedly volunteered to go out into the field to write human interest stories about the combat soldiers. He often expressed a desire to emulate Ernie Pyle, who wrote such stories about the combat soldiers in World War II. Like Ernie Pyle, Steve was killed in action. In February 1971 the vehicle on which he was riding in Quang Tri Province was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, killing Steve and three other American soldiers. Killed In Action contains 22 photographs taken by Steve Warner during his travels around Vietnam, as well as a selection of his human interest articles.
