Carrying a volume of Yeats's poems in his uniform pocket, Hanson joins the Green Berets fresh out of college. He has no idea of what he's about to face in Vietnam—from the enemy, from his fellow soldiers, or within himself. Drawn from Kent Anderson's own experiences, this 1987 debut is a dark journey through Hanson's two tours of duty and his ill-fated return to civilian life in between. If he is to survive the war, Hanson discovers to his chagrin, he must agree to be changed by it. "Anderson's work is chilling and authentic."—Oliver Stone
