The entire Vietnam experience [in] one epic narrative. The New York Times Book ReviewFor Pete Bravado, the war begins with home and family in Brooklyn: his grandfathers broken dreams, his fathers ice-hard heart, his mothers tragic affection, and his own disillusionment and delinquency. Raised against the grain of his true nature, Pete seeks escape in the army -- but instead of finding freedom, he finds a madness in himself that answers the madness of war. And when he comes home, a new struggle begins -- a struggle to see what the war has made him, so he can begin to remake himself.
