Mike and the men in his platoon make dream and reality interchangeable as the only way to make sense of the senseless, cryptic war. . . But this fragile accommodation to the war is shattered by a new platoon leader, leading to one of the most powerful and moving scenes in the literature of war. In a conclusion that will haunt readers long after the book is laid down, Mike is forced to confront himself and what it means to be a soldier."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
