War Year

'“Haldeman is much more than just a military SF writer, but it’s clear that Vietnam remains central to his existence and the nightmare inspiration for some of his best work . . . Far from escapist, Haldeman’s art provides a devastating retrospective of a particularly black time in American history.” —Publishers Weekly   “A powerfully direct narrative thrust . . . Hemingway looks like Mr. Haldeman’s most obvious model. . . . The novel carries absolute conviction in its own terms; Mr. Haldeman catches the way serving soldiers talk and move and respond to each other with a fidelity that is harsh but never inhumane.” —Commonweal   “[One of the] outstanding books of the year.” —The New York Times Book Review   “If you want to know what happens to a nice American boy in Vietnam, this is it.” —Santa Fe New Mexican'
