Abstract:

A pacifist novel about a war between two fictional countries, Upper Dororo (backed by China) and Lower Dororo (backed by the U.S.). Each country is ruled by a Siamese twin brother. No one knows why the countries are fighting. A teacher named Wro Wrainn "who is tired of having his back yard shelled, decides to find the answer." The hero travels to China to see what can be done to end the war. The leader of China, female Chairman Pong says she can not do anything and suggests Wro go to the U.S. He does so and encounters the heavily satarized President Payson, who has his own concerns. Wro fails to end the war, which is clearly based upon the Vietnam conflict that was going on at the time of the novel.
