it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction
Read in October, 1996

This book certainly earns its title of "the quintessential anti-war novel." I never want to read this again, but I am glad for the experience. Powerful, memorable, horrible, well done. A truly frightening story. The inspiration for the Metallica song/video "One."
