The Chapter in the book that had me most engaged was, "The Sweetheart of the Song Tra bong". Out of what i have read in the book so far, this chapter was by far my favorite. I find it amazing that Fossie was actually able to pull off bringing his girlfriend all the way around the world to a war zone. I believe that this chapter also represented the fact that we can talk about war all we want when were are sitting at home safe and sound, but we will never truly understand it, or its effect on the human body and mind unless we decide to live through it.
This book has made me realize that I really have no idea what war is like, and that the American people and it's government do not have the right to make decisions about war while sitting being a big wooden desk in Washington. We will only truly understand war, and how it works when we are directly involved in it.
