Summary
Cacciato gathers compass, fresh water, and maps and walks out of the mire and fury of Vietnam, bound for the gaiety and life of Paris
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "To call Going After Cacciato  a novel about war is like calling Moby  Dick a novel about whales." So wrote  The New York Times of Tim O'Brein's  now classic novel of Vietnam. Winner of the 1979  National Book Award, Going After  Cacciato captures the peculiar blend of horror and  hallucinatory comedy that marked this the strangest  of wars. Reality and fantasy merge in this  fictional account of one private's sudden discussion to  lay down his rifle and begin a quixotic journey  from the of Indochina to the streets of Paris. Will  Cacciato make it all the way? Or will he be yet  another casualty of a conflict that seems to have no  end? In its memorable evocation of men both  fleeing and meeting the demands of the battle,  Going After Cacciato stands as much more  than just a great war novel. Ultimately it's about  the forces of fear and heroism that do battle in  the hearts of us all.
