A Rumor of War by Philip Caputo The classic Vietnam memoir, as relevant today as it was almost thirty years ago. In March of 1965, Marine Lieutenent Philip J. Caputo landed at Da Nang with the first ground combat unit deployed to Vietnam. Sixteen months later, ha ving served on the line in one of modern history's ugliest wars, he returne d home-physically whole but emotionally wasted, his youthful idealism forev er gone. A Rumor of War is more than one soldier's story. Upon its publication in 19 77, it shattered America's indifference to the fate of the men sent to figh t in the jungles of Vietnam. In the years since then, it has become not onl y a basic text on the Vietnam War but also a renowned classic in the litera ture of wars throughout history and, as Caputo explains, of "the things men do in war and the things war does to men." "A singular and marvelous work." -The New York Times.
