    A scathing indictment of the corruption of the human soul by war, Kenneth Levin’s bracingly honest and harrowing debut is reminiscent of masterworks like Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried and Bao Ninh’s The Sorrow of War. A decorated combat veteran whose his own experiences in Vietnam are combined with the personal interviews of North Vietnamese veterans, Levin deftly explores the nature of man amidst the chaos and horror of war. As illuminating as it is disturbing, Crazy Razor demonstrates with stark clarity that the real villain in war…is war itself.

    The short stories contained in The Many Deaths of Comrade Binh are fiction. This does not, however, mean they aren't true. Retired naval officer Kenneth Levin readily admits to some artistic license, but each tale is based on actual events that occurred during the Vietnam War.

    When a soldier leaves for war, those left behind often wonder what their loved ones are experiencing. Letters home are always cheerful and vague - no sense in worrying the family. Then upon returning home, these young soldiers do not want to talk about their experiences. Family and friends allege they are now distant, changed, and not the same person they remember from several months earlier. What causes this? Although the backdrop for this novel is the Vietnam War, "cherries" exist in every war.

    John Ryan never killed anyone; never even fired a gun in Vietnam. He worked in an air-conditioned building in the safest city in Vietnam. If you had to fight a war, this was the way to do it. Friends, parties, weed, and rock n' roll filled their nights. Laughter and comradery were plentiful. They thought they would serve their tour and escape back to the real world without wounds. War leaves no one untouched. No one escapes. All wounds are not from bullets.

It was a time when America won the battle but lost the war.

Their goal: to spend every cent of their mustering out money in a party of a lifetime.
