Reviews

The best book I have ever read on men and war in our time.
Having read Dispatches, it is difficult to convey the impact of total experience as all the facades of patriotism, heroism and the whole colossal fraud of American intervention fall away to the bare bones of fear, war and death
Splendid . . . he brings alive the terror of combat in a way that rivals All Quiet on the Western Front
In the great line of Crane, Orwell and Hemingway . . . he seems to have brought to this book the ear of a musician and the eye of a painter, Frank Zappa and Francis Bacon
