Yes it was the basis for Apocalypse Now, but if you've seen the movie you should still read the book. Take away the overtones of the Vietnam war and you have an extremely insightful look at the level of inhumanity it is possible for people to sink to when the constraints of civilization (and sanity) are removed. - Aimee F.
