Tour of Duty Advisor's Notebook

Below are links to a series of essays for writers of Vietnam War fiction, written by Tour of Duty advisor Lee Russell (1987-1989). They are not intended to be a substitute for actual research, but should be sufficient to get someone started. They emphasize the actual "soldier experience" rather than military details. Other materials are also linked below, including notes for each first season episode.
