About This Item

HarperCollins Publishers Limited. Used - Good. Ships from the UK. Former library book; may include library markings. Used book that is in clean, average condition without any missing pages.


"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.
