A first class rendition of Vietnam reportage. Helped by including "Dispatches" by Michael Herr in full in Vol.2.
What emerges from these writers is a feeling that in war, the human being enters a new state of being. Ideological delusion, when acted out requires the soldier, the advisor, the politician, the victim, everyone who's close at hand to enter a new crazed mentality. A moral civilized standpoint doesn't seem to work much any more.
Because war destroys one's humanity, a survivor from this hellish state suffers agonies and fears that haunt the person, too often for a lifetime. It is heartbreaking to remember that the average age of the combatant in this devastating descent to madness was nineteen.
A masterpiece from the Library of America.
