Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

First published nearly thirty years ago, this ground-breaking memoir of the Vietnam War by a Marine Corps veteran brings America's attention to the men who served in the jungles of Vietnam.


Review:

"Philip Caputo's elegantly written 'A Rumor Of War' traces the effect the 'savagery' of the Vietnam 'conflict' had on his life, as he changed from a gung-ho Marine officer...to a man court-martialed for murder."

Ann Collette, San Francisco Review of Books, May/June 1995

Review:

"[T]he ultimate effect of this book is to make the personal and public responsibility merge into a nightmare of horror and waste experienced humanly by the Caputos and inhumanly by the politicians and generals. Out of the force of his obsession with the war and his role in it, Caputo has revealed the broken idealism and suppressed agony of America's involvement."

Ted Solotaroff, New York Times Book Review, 05/29/1977

Book Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. The classic Vietnam memoir, as relevant today as it was almost thirty years ago. In March of 1965, Marine Lieutenent Philip J. Caputo landed at Da Nang with the first ground combat unit deployed to Vietnam. Sixteen months later, having served on the line in one of modern historys ugliest wars, he returned home--physically whole but emotionally wasted, his youthful idealism forever gone. A Rumor of War is more than one soldiers story. Upon its publication in 1977, it shattered Americas indifference to the fate of the men sent to fight in the jungles of Vietnam. In the years since then, it has become not only a basic text on the Vietnam War but also a renowned classic in the literature of wars throughout history and, as Caputo explains, of the things men do in war and the things war does to men. A singular and marvelous work. --The New York Times This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN, Momence,IL, Commerce,GA. book.
