About This Item

Paperback. Very Good.


"The Things They Carried" is a powerful and moving collection of interconnected short stories about the experiences of American soldiers during the Vietnam War. Written by Tim O'Brien, a Vietnam veteran himself, the book explores the physical and emotional weight that soldiers carry with them into battle, and the lasting effects that war can have on individuals and society as a whole. Through a series of gripping and often heart-wrenching vignettes, O'Brien delves into themes of memory, trauma, loss, and the power of storytelling to make sense of our experiences. He also examines the complexities of human nature and the moral ambiguities of war, showing how soldiers are often forced to confront difficult ethical dilemmas and make impossible choices in the midst of chaos and violence.

About World of Books Ltd

In 2002, World of Books Group was founded on an ethos to do good, protect the planet and support charities by enabling more goods to be reused. Since then, we've grown into to a global company pioneering the circular economy. Today, we drive the circular economy through three re-commerce brands:
- Wob: Through Wob, we sell. We provide affordable, preloved books and media to customers all over the world. A book leaves our collection of over seven million titles and begins a new chapter every two seconds, enabling more goods to be reused.
- Ziffit: Through Ziffit, we buy. We give people around the world the opportunity to contribute to the circular economy, earn money and protect the planet, by trading their unwanted books and media.
- Shopiago: Through Shopiago, we help others. By sharing the technology that has grown World of Books Group into the business it is today, we're helping charities increase revenue and reduce waste through re-commerce.
