Summary
"In this powerful anti-war novel set in WWII Japan, Lieutenant Nate Hooper isn't sure he'll survive the fight. And if he does make it home, he isn't sure he can survive the peace. He's done a terrible thing, and struggles to resolve the mistake alongside an unrepentant Japanese soldier and a Japanese woman who is trying to save both men. The characters face a decision that will forever define them not by their war against each other, but by their war against themselves. This is a tale of moral complexity, of decisions that last longer than people do. With allegorical connections to America's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the reverse chronology telling of Hooper's War turns a loss-of-innocence narrative into a tale of why that loss is inevitable."--Amazon.com
