• Refreshingly unique memoir of life in combat in war-torn Vietnam

At the height of the Vietnam War, Charles Carr left graduate school to join the army and fight in Vietnam, knowing that if he didn't go, another man would go - and possibly die - in his place. His memoir charts a reflective course between Right and Left, between blind support and counterculture protest, between "Let's kill some Vietcong” and "The U.S. deserves to lose.” While his descriptions of combat, life in Vietnam, and the chain of command ring familiar, his perspective is refreshingly unique.

More than just a battle memoir, this is the story of one man trying to find his way in uncertain times- and to come home alive.
