by | Read by Sean Runnette

Historical Fiction • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1978

Be warned: If you were there in the jungles of Vietnam, this might bring it all back. If you weren't, then it's an excellent history lesson. Sean Runnette's narration is a perfect fit for this poignant story of diverse characters who are tossed together in the horror of combat. Runnette's voice is totally serious, capturing the essence of war stripped of its spin and media hype. Each character becomes a grotesque simulacrum of the man he was back home, and Runnette delivers these dualities with clarity and distinction. With his calm pacing and delivery, he demonstrates how war amplifies all that is good and bad in those cast into the fields of fire. M.C. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
