Summary note
"In 1969, an American soldier's adventure turned nightmare brings a visceral understanding of the words penned by Thoreau: 'Most men live lives of quiet desperation,' especially those at war. This emotional journey of self-realization chronicles the key perspective--shaping experiences of a U.S. Army grunt fighting in Vietnam"-- Provided by publisher.
