Home | Cry for the Water Buffalo | Clancy's Christmas Stampede | Loose Ends


A Vietnamese family is decimated by the war around them and a sniper caught up in the military machine. Children, parents, politicians and soldiers are shaped by the war, driven by it, and, worst of all, never freed from it. Cry for the Water Buffalo is reminiscent of the U.S. Civil War when families were divided by ideology, allegiance and necessity.

This is a work of contemporary historical fiction that moves from the fighting of the Vietnam War into the lives of today’s still struggling immigrants and soldiers who share the persistent and often unrecognized residuals of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Haunting!

Jim Zitzelsberger served two tours of duty in Vietnam with Naval Mobil Construction Battalion (MCB) 128 stationed at Da Nang and Quang Tri during the pivotal years of 1967, ’68, and ’69.
