About this title

Synopsis:

A personal memoir of the war in Vietnam, in which the author first served as a Marine and which he later covered as a reporter

From the Inside Flap:

"A singular and marvelous work." -- The New York Times
"Compelling . . . A thoroughly honest view of what the experience of Vietnam meant to a young college graduate, a 'gung-ho' lieutenant in the marine corps who enlisted for the 'heroic experience' of war . . . It is the most eloquent statement yet on what Vietnam was for the lower echelons who had to do the dirty work." -- Seattle Times
"Heartbreaking, terrifying, and enraging . . . It will make the strongest among us weep."
-- Los Angeles Times
