A vintage from the New York Times bestselling creator of The Issues They Carried
“Probably the most best possible, so much annoying, and so much robust books concerning the disgrace that used to be / is Vietnam.”
—Minneapolis Superstar and Tribune
Before writing his award-profitable Going After Cacciato, Tim O’Brien gave us this intensely private account of his yr as a foot soldier in Vietnam. The creator takes us with him to revel in Battle from at the back of an infantryman’s rifle, to stroll the minefields of My Lai, to move slowly into the ghostly tunnels, and to discover the ambiguities of manhood and morality in a warfare long gone extraordinarily mistaken. Superbly written and searingly heartfelt, If I Die in a Battle Zone is a masterwork of its style.
