This is an awesome read! I was afraid the book might be too gruesome for me, but it wasn’t. I have a much better understanding of the war experience now that I’ve read this novel. It consists of a bunch of very short chapters. Each one describes one particular incident, told from the point of view of a particular soldier. Each chapter is narrated by a different soldier. Sometimes, they are telling about the same incident, but from a different point of view. The novel tells the complete story in that the incidents described happen before, during & after the war. I highly recommend this book!
