In March 1965, Marine Lieutenant Philip J Caputo landed in Danang with the first ground combat unit committed to fight in Vietnam. Sixteen months later, having served on the line in one of modern history's ugliest wars, he returned home - physically whole, emotionally wasted, his youthful idealism shattered. A decade later, Caputo would write 'A Rumor of War'. It is simply a story about war, about the things men do in war, and the things war does to them.

But it is far more than that. It is the book that shattered America's deliberate indifference to the fate of the men it sent to fight in the jungles of Vietnam, and in the years since it was first published in 1977 it has become a basic text on that war. And in the literature of war that stretches back to Homer, it has taken its place as an esteemed classic, to rank alongside 'All Quiet on the Western Front' and 'The Naked and the Dead.'

This edition contains a twentieth-anniversary postscript by the Author.
