Abstract:

In March of 1965, Lieutenant Philip J. Caputo landed at Danang with the first ground combat unit deployed to Vietnam. Sixteen months later, having served on the line in one of modern history's ugliest wars, he returned home-- physically whole but emotionally wasted, his youthful idealism forever gone. His memoir, first published in 1977, shattered America's indifference to the fate of the men sent to fight in the jungles of Vietnam. In the years since then, it has become a basic text on the Vietnam War. -- adapted from jacket
