This book showcases for the first time the personalized Zippo engravings by American soldiers made during the Vietnam War (1964–1973). Drawn from the collection of American artist Bradford Edwards and other private collections the chrome-plated brass bears witness to the uncensored feelings of young men at war; their testimony is shocking and both hilarious and poignant in its bitter satire. Soldiers engraved love death sex drugs and rock’n’roll onto the canvases of their Zippo lighters in a real-life version of the war portrayed in Francis Ford Coppola’s epic film Apocalypse Now.
