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.
"A personal document of aching clarity. . . . A beautiful, painful book." (New York Times Book Review)
