Summary
  • Frustrated by the war in Vietnam, an Army private lays down his rifle and begins to walk from the jungles of Vietnam to the streets of Paris
  • "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." -- Publisher's description
