About this title

Synopsis:

Like many other high school graduates in the 1960s, Philip Dosier found that if he didn't have plans for himself, his country certainly did. Shipped off to fight in a war he knew nothing about, he found himself in a world of violence, fear, heat, and squalor unlike anything that he ever dreamed could exist.

Told in the unflinchingly accurate language of the field soldier--fast, rough slang that becomes a kind of surreal poetry--CLOSE QUARTERS is the story of Dosier's year in Vietnam.

"An unremittingly honest look into the black pit of war...[Larry Heinemann's] voice is clear and true." (The New York Times)
