Abstract :This paper considers a number of problems which arose after the publication of my earlier work entitled Field of Spears. I will discuss how I sought clarity in the murky waters of war memories, and consider instances in which I encountered inconsistent evidence and difficult decisions about how much to report of the sometimes tragic or shameful actions of informants during the stressful conditions of war. The manner in which I dealt with these issues will also be discussed. I will also consider how the problems facing oral history researchers do not end with the fieldwork process, but may bigin in earnest after the publication of their results. I close with an account of how positive experiences can help to heal the scars of earlier trauma.
