If I Die in a Combat Zone, Box Me Up and Ship Me Home
A CLASSIC FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE THINGS THEY CARRIED
Before writing his award-winning Going After Cacciato, Tim O'Brien gave us this intensely personal account of his year as a foot soldier in Vietnam. The author takes us with him to experience combat from behind an infantryman's rifle, to walk the minefields of My Lai, to crawl into the ghostly tunnels, and to explore the ambiguities of manhood and morality in a war gone terribly wrong. Beautifully written and searingly heartfelt, If I Die in a Combat Zone is a masterwork of its genre.
Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader's guide and bonus content

OK, it is considered a classic and it is a good read, but I wasn't bowled over either. I am sure that some of the adulation came from his being one of the first to really describe firsthand the experiences in Vietnam. It is well written and revealing. Read full review
