14: Greg Daddis - The Vietnam War and Men's Adventure Magazines
Play • 30 min
Before and during the Vietnam War, some of the most popular magazines among those who served were pulp fiction men's adventure magazines. Greg Daddis (former US Army Colonel and professor of military history at San Diego State University) is with us to unpack the relationship between fiction and reality, how we talk about wars and choose to remember them, and how constructions of gender really matter. It's the subject of his new book, Pulp Vietnam: War and Gender in Cold War Men's Adventure Magazines, from Cambridge University Press.
