Presidio Book Club - "Soldiers in Revolt: GI Resistance During the Vietnam War"

Saturday, Oct 20, 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM At Presidio Officers' Club Offered by:

Presidio Trust

The traditional book club has been reimagined as an inclusive public program that anyone can take part in, whether or not they’ve read the book. Enjoy contextualizing remarks by Presidio Trust historian, Dr. Barbara Berglund Sokolov, and then participate in or just listen to the facilitated discussion of both the book and the general topic that follows. Think of this as part book club, part graduate seminar, part Parisian salon.

All titles are available for purchase at the Presidio Visitor Center.


Saturday, October 20, 1 to 3 pm
David Cortright, with an introduction by Howard Zinn, Soldiers in Revolt: GI Resistance During the Vietnam War (Haymarket Books, 1975 & 2005)

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Presidio 27 – the 27 inmates of the Presidio Stockade who were charged with mutiny, the most serious military offense, for peaceful protest during the Vietnam War. Understand the larger context of GI resistance through this classic work. Dive even deeper into this history with our Presidio 27 Signature Events on October 13th and 14th.
