    When it first appeared, A Rumor of War brought home to American readers, with terrifying vividness and honesty, the devastating effects of the Vietnam War on the soldiers who fought there. And while it is a memoir of one young man's experiences and therefore deeply personal, it is also a book that speaks powerfully to today's students about the larger themes of human conscience, good and evil, and the desperate extremes men are forced to confront in any war.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    As Viet Nam vet i would not recommend it to those wanting to learn more about that conflict.


    Would you recommend A Rumor of War to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend it highly as it is not written with pop.


    Have you listened to any of L. J. Ganser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was A Rumor of War worth the listening time?

    It was worth it to me because as a Viet Nam vet I had a proper frame of reference. THis is not done in a historical framework.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy a more historical approach.
