Here's an early example by an academic - a professor of English no less.

1984 Peter C. Rollins in _American Qly._ XXXVI 424: A few novels explore
other metaphors and other themes to reveal the experience of Vietnam.
[Robert Mason's] _Chickenhawk_ explores a number of themes absent from
footsoldier reports by Caputo, Kovic, or Ehrhart.

All the books alluded to are advertised as memoirs.
