Read full description of the books Better times than these: A novel:I have read several historical/fiction accounts of the Vietnam War and several supposedly actual historical books on the subject. My favorites previous to Better Times Than These "The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien" and "Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes". This being a first book by Groom, I wasn't expecting much even though I knew he was a Vietnam Vet. Boy was I ever surprised. If you are willing to read this book, you might be able understand a little of the the mood and emotions the Vietnam War had on its Soldiers and its Civilians. The book definitely captured the nightmare that was the American experience of that War.
Phu Bai, Vietnam (1966-1967)
