Reprint. Originally published: New York: Delacorte, 1978.

Winner of the National Book Award, `Going After Cacciato' captures the peculiar mixture of horror and hallucination that marked the Vietnam War, this strangest of wars. In a blend of reality and fantasy, this novel tells the story of a young soldier who one day lays down his rifle and sets off on a quixotic journey from the jungles of Indochina to the streets of Paris. In its memorable evocation of men both fleeing from and meeting the demands of battle, `Going After Cacciato' stands as much more than just a great war novel.

Ultimately it's about the forces of fear and heroism that do battle in the hearts of us all.
