Augie's War
by John H. Brown




Overview -

Homer Hickam, the author of Rocket Boys, says Augie's War is, "One of the most powerful novels I've yet read on the Vietnam War. As a veteran of that awful conflict, I was absolutely riveted by the tale of Augie and his buddies and every word rang true."

Augie's War is an outrageously funny, but deadly serious novel of war, family and coming of age. Augie Cumpton has to find a way to survive his deployment to Vietnam so he escapes the horror and insanity of war by retreating to his safe haven; a cerebral sanctuary where he can reflect on family and friends, humorous incidents, and a coterie of unforgettable characters from back home. But now as his tour is about to end and the war intensifies, he faces a legal and moral dilemma when corrupt superiors make criminal demands on him. If he refuses to comply, he might end up dead - a victim of friendly fire. So now it's up to Augie to survive both the war and the demands of disreputable officers in order to make it home in one piece.
