Summary

Review Excerpts

"Narrator Dan Jon Miller's youthful voice is a perfect match for the material…O'Brien's powerful memoir remains highly relevant and should be standard issue to all military personnel and their families. Highly recommended." --- Library Journal Audio Review

"Dan Miller's performance is exceptional. His narration is always clear and well paced. When he occasionally takes on the voice of one of O'Brien's vivid characters, his performance blends seamlessly with the story." ---AudioFile

"A personal document of aching clarity. . . . A beautiful, painful book." ---New York Times Book Review

"One of the best, most disturbing, and most powerful books about the shame that was/is Vietnam." ---Minneapolis Star and Tribune

Summary

Before writing his award-winning Going After Cacciato, Tim O'Brien gave us this intensely personal account of his year as a foot soldier in Vietnam. The author takes us with him to experience combat from behind an infantryman's rifle, to walk the minefields of My Lai, to crawl into the ghostly tunnels, and to explore the ambiguities of manhood and morality in a war gone terribly wrong.  Beautifully written and searingly heartfelt, If I Die in a Combat Zone is a masterwork of its genre.
