If I Die in a Combat Zone: Box Me Up and Ship Me Homeby Tim O'Brien
During the Vietnam war, Tim O'Brien spent a year in the U.S. infantry. As a result, he wrote If I Die in a Combat Zone (Box Me Up and Ship Me Home), an account of his experiences there. He doesn't spare us the terrible particulars of this piece of our history: it's what has made us; it is us; and it's the story that we continue to tell ourselves. War is the engine of horror and dead souls from which we do not seem to be able to part.
