Internationaler Buchtitel. In englischer Sprache. Verlag: Canto34 Press, 322 Seiten, L=229mm, B=152mm, H=18mm, Gew.=472gr, [GR: 21110 - TB/Belletristik/Romane/Erzählungen], [SW: - Fiction - General], Kartoniert/Broschiert, Klappentext: During the height of the Vietnam War, the U.S. Army resorted to a bait-and-switch scam that recruited thousands of unsuspecting college graduates into its combat ranks. This is the story of two of its victims-Drew and Eliot-who join the Army to become signal officers but instead are reassigned to the infantry, a misfortune that treats their beloved diplomas as one-way tickets to the jungles of Vietnam. Finding uncertainty in a certain war, they manage to avoid the most dreadful duty-pointman in an infantry company. Their misadventures-Drew lugging a 25-pound radio on his back, and Eliot writing military propaganda in Saigon-lead them down different paths, one becoming a war hero, the other a casualty of war. Written from a diversity of perspectives-fictional, historical, and autobiographical-this book is about survival, not only on the battlefield, but in the mind of an artist caught between his pursuit of a masterpiece and his allegiance to the men fighting to stay alive.

Americans fought to defend and share their freedoms with the people of South Vietnam. They were indebted to their fathers who fought in World War II to save these freedoms. However, the policy of containment denied them victory. At all levels, the U.S. underestimated the enemy. How could such a small, backward country go up against the mighty United States? As the war dragged on, U.S. commanders thought they were making progress. This was true in terms of body counts and thwarting enemy offensives, but the enemy’s terms were different. Americans understood the Asian art of war but not the philosophy of war. A huge abyss divides American culture. It is the belief that science alone can explain the totality of experience and life, and distinguish between truth and error. The philosopher lives in a world of ambiguities and is largely ignored. At most, writers, artists, and movie makers are tolerated, for they entertain. But philosophy is totally forsaken. The war has been a source of endless exploitations by the media. Attempts by moviemakers to portray it in dramatic fashion have influenced public opinion against veterans. The all-seeing, omnipresent eye of the camera bombards the viewer with simultaneous scenes of blood and carnage. Because the war was intrinsically evil, the outcome was justifiably a failure. New Age philosophy with a twist of karma is what Hollywood would have us consume. This book takes a different turn. Independently published, it is about real veter contemporary,genre fiction,historical,historical fiction,literature and fiction Historical Fiction, Canto 34 Press
