A White Man in Viet-Nam

A terrible cover but a very hooking reading. Wolff is a master describing realities and especially the minds of his characters. Here we have the story of a young Wolff serving in Viet-Nam as an American soldier and we will find all the classical ingredients: The Viet Cong (VC), the Tet offensive, the rain, the ponchos, the mud, the cultural barriers... another book about Viet-Nam? Not at all - read it and you will tell me.
