Carl Melcher Goes To Vietnam Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Carl Melcher Goes To Vietnam

The year is 1968. Like thousands of other American boys, Carl Melcher is drafted and goes to Vietnam. His new company is infected with the same racial tensions plaguing the nation. Despite that, Carl makes friends on both sides of the color line. The war, like a tiger lurking in the bushes, picks off its victims one by one. Naively overoptimistic, Carl believes that karma and good intentions will save him and his friends. Then fate intervenes to teach Carl something of the meaning of life, and death.
