A Rumor of War by Philip Caputo

The classic Vietnam memoir, as relevant today as it was almost thirty years ago. In March of 1965, Marine Lieutenent Philip J. Caputo landed at Da Nang with the first ground combat unit deployed to Vietnam. Sixteen months later, having served on the line in one of modern historys ugliest wars, he returned home physically whole but emotionally wasted, his youthful idealism forever gone. A Rumor of War is more than one soldiers story. Upon its publication in 1977, it shattered Americas indifference to the fate of the men sent to fight in the jungles of Vietnam. In the years since then, it has become not only a basic text on the Vietnam War but also a renowned classic in the literature of wars throughout history and, as Caputo explains, of the things men do in war and the things war does to men. A singular and marvelous work. The New York Times
