Description
A CLASSIC FROM THE "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF "THE THINGS THEY CARRIED
"
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. Beautifully written and searingly heartfelt, "If I Die in a Combat Zone" is a masterwork of its genre.
Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader's guide and bonus content.
