Suicide Charlie: a Vietnam War story
Russell's story is more than a soldier's memoir because it speaks to the universal experience of soldiering. He also shares the struggles of his father, a WWII veteran who eventually took his own life, and his many comrades-in-arms. Russell wrote and produced an award-winning PBS-TV program entitled Fathers and Sons: Two Generations of American Combat Veterans.
