While teaching in the English Department at Radford University in Virginia, Margaret Brown was given the creative license to develop a unique curriculum for the Honors Program that would focus on one topic for the semester.  For a number of years, her focus was The Vietnam War.  Aided by members of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter #138, Margaret witnessed a new generation gaining new insight on a war that some may say we are still fighting.

That Time, That Place, That War is an illustrated reference book that sprang from  Margaret Brown's experiences teaching this honors program.  The book is arranged alphabetically from Alpha through Zulu, explaining the general vernacular of the infantrymen during the Vietnam War.  With poetry by the soldiers themselves and photos very personal and unique to those who were there, those who remember, those who might not have shared their story in any other way, Margaret's book is poignant and depicts perspectives not published before.
