A_rumor_of_warA rumor of war, by Philip Caputo is a first hand account of how it is to be a Marine in Vietnam, from the first months to heavy combat action. He served multiple times and had many different roles. It’s about anecdotes, processes and psyche. Told in diary style focussing on micro developments. Very, very impressive. The fast pace style of writing is brilliantly met by the narrator. If you are looking for a story on first hand experience in Vietnam, this is the one to read. If you want the overall picture of the USA in Vietnam you need a different title.
