Before writing his award-winning Going After Cacciato, Tim O’Brien gave us this intensely personal account of his year as a foot soldier in Vietnam. The author takes us with him to experience combat from behind an infantryman’s rifle, to walk the minefields of My Lai, to crawl into the ghostly tunnels, and to explore the ambiguities of manhood and morality in a war gone terribly wrong.

“O’Brien’s sensitively written journal of his year in Vietnam, which is fast, compelling reading today, will go down even better in the years ahead. The kind of thing that will bring life and reality to future history books.”–The Washington Post

“O’Brien brilliantly and quietly evokes the foot soldier’s daily life in the paddies and foxholes, evokes a blind, blundering war.... Tim O’Brien writes with...care and eloquence.... A personal document of aching clarity.... A beautiful, painful book.”–The New York Times Book Review
