After volunteering to serve in Vietnam, Larry Heinemann returned to the United States to write two novels, as well as this remembrance of that nation three decades ago. Heinemann's tone is harsh and heartfelt; he clearly resents the stupidity and futility of that earlier military enterprise, intending perhaps a message for those who would "spread democracy" today. His voice is deep and pounding, like a barrage of mortar shells; the presentation is otherwise as formal and reserved as a memorial service. This book will not be a favorite of Army recruiters but perhaps belongs in the collections of history teachers, so that our children may be spared the romance of war.
