Description
The Things They Carried is a masterful novel of the Vietnam War that has been called the greatest war novel ever written. The soldiers carried malaria tablets, love letters, 28-pound mine detectors, dope, illustrated Bibles, each other. And, if they made it home alive, they carried unrelenting images of a nightmarish war that history is only beginning to absorb, since its publication, The Things They Carried has become an unparalleled Vietnam testament, a classic work of american literature, and a profound study of men at war that illuminates the capacity, and the limits, of the human heart and soul.

520 |a This depicts the men of Alpha Company. They battle the enemy (or maybe more the idea of the enemy), and occasionally each other. In their relationships we see their isolation and loneliness, their rage and fear. They miss their families, their girlfriends and buddies; they miss the lives they left back home. Yet they find sympathy and kindness for strangers (the old man who leads them unscathed through the mine field, the girl who grieves while she dances), and love for each other, because in Vietnam they are the only family they have.
