Quotes & Awards

    Dayton Daily News

  • “Turse has framed his case with deeply researched, relentless authority…There is no doubt in my mind that Kill Anything That Moves belongs on the very highest shelf of books on the Vietnam War.”

    The Millions, editorial review

  • “A staggering reminder that war has its gruesome subplots hidden underneath the headlines but they’re even sadder when our heroes create them.”


  • “No doubt some will charge Nick Turse with exaggeration or overstatement. Yet the evidence he has assembled is irrefutable. With the publication of Kill Anything That Moves, the claim that My Lai was a one-off event becomes utterly unsustainable.”

    Andrew J. Bacevich, Colonel, US Army (Ret.), and author of Washington Rules: America’s Path to Permanent War 

  • “American patriots will appreciate Nick Turse’s meticulously documented book.”

    James Bradley, author of Flags of Our Fathers

    Daniel Ellsberg, author of Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers 

  • “A powerful case…With superb narrative skill, he spotlights a troubling question: Why, with all the evidence collected by the military at the time of the war, were atrocities not prosecuted?”

    Washington Post

  • “A comprehensive picture, written with mastery and dignity, of what American forces actually were doing in Vietnam. A convincing, inescapable portrait of this war—a portrait that, as an American, you do not wish to see; that, having seen, you wish you could forget, but that you should not forget.”

    The Nation

  • “Nick Turse’s explosive, groundbreaking reporting uncovers the horrifying truth.”

    Vanity Fair

  • “Explosive…A painful yet compelling look at the horrors of war.”


  • “Astounding. . . . Meticulous, extraordinary, and oddly moving.”
