This essay is about the Topic's name: a book called 'The Morenci Marines: a Tale of Small Town America and the Vietnam War'. It is a book about soldiers from a small town and their experiences during the Vietnam War. 750-1000 words The Instructions for the essay read: "In your view, how does the book, by Longley, contribute to the picture we’re developing of militarism, antimilitarism, and militarization across United States history? Be sure to state your argument clearly in the opening part of the essay. Use lectures to provide context, and use the book in question [Leonard, March, Longley, or Alexander] for evidence (quotations, examples, and so on) to support your argument. So the Essay is whether or not the book has elements of militarism, anti-militarism, and/or militarization. To give a basis for the essay, I think it has all three due to the excitement of signing up for the draft (militarism) and the military history of the town, the militarization of the country for the war, and anti-militarism of author's friends dying and the horrors of war. This book does show all three, but if you know the book and argue for one or two, that's okay too. This should give a good basis for the book. No outside references! Attaches is the books cover. Thanks.
