Summaries and Reviews
Summary
Surviving the Vietnam war but unable to escape the horrible memories of his battle experiences, Spec. 4 James Griffin is driven to relive the horrors that have pushed him to the limits of sanity. Reprint. NYT. PW.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Called "brilliant" by The New York Times Book Review, this is a shocking and bitterly funny look at the dark side of Vietnam unknown to those back home, but all too familiar to every American in country.

The subject of extraordinary critical acclaim, this wonderfully descriptive novel by the author of Going Native brings us Vietnam from the point of view of a soldier very personally affected by the horrors of jungle war.  Spec. 4 James Griffin may have left Vietnam, but Vietnam will never leave him.  And although the war changed him from a boy into a living kaleidoscope of terror, he nonetheless is driven to relive it endlessly, doing battle with his haunting memories of a brutal war...even at the risk of losing his health, his sanity...and his very soul.
