Resenhas

Another superb book by LOA and the perfect companion volume to Part One, the early years. Good reporting by numerous journalists on the situation in Cambodia as well as VietNam. The only prose I did not like in this volume was the 200 page piece to end the book by Michael Herr. Twas probably stoned most of the time he wrote it as much of it is incomprehensible. Finished 21.07.2020.

A superb documentary. The only faults I found were with the inclusion of Norman Mailer and Tom Wolfe, neither of whom I can appreciate. Finished 11.07.2020.

A first class rendition of Vietnam reportage. Helped by including "Dispatches" by Michael Herr in full in Vol.2.
What emerges from these writers is a feeling that in war, the human being enters a new state of being. Ideological delusion, when acted out requires the soldier, the advisor, the politician, the victim, everyone who's close at hand to enter a new crazed mentality. A moral civilized standpoint doesn't seem to work much any more.
Because war destroys one's humanity, a survivor from this hellish state suffers agonies and fears that haunt the person, too often for a lifetime. It is heartbreaking to remember that the average age of the combatant in this devastating descent to madness was nineteen.
A masterpiece from the Library of America.
