It manages to isolate, in chapter after chapter, the obscenity of killing and being killed for a cause men sense (even when they are uncertain) is an unworthy cause. It captures the peculiar 'texture' of the Vietnam War -- its language, its suffering, its habits, its horror and the sacrifices men made in it better than any novel of the war has yet done. The novel is to be compared specifically to The Naked and The Dead."...dj
