SOLDIER IN PARADISE by Vietnam War veteran John Mort. Alternating between "stateside" chapters after the war and the Vietnam chapters dramatizing it, the novel creates a tension back and forth in time as well as geography. We participate in the trauma of combat in crisp and authentic detail, and we witness the effect of that experience on a reluctant soldier and his fellow infantrymen in the jungles and mountains of Vietnam. An outstanding book. The author served with the 1st Cav in Vietnam in 1968-69. Hard cover. 180 pages.
