The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien
The subtitle of this book, "haunting stories of the Vietnam war", says it all. The stories are based on O'Brien's own experiences and those of his fellow soldiers. Although fiction, these stories read like fact, and reveal the soldier's lives in a way I hadn't expected. This is the twentieth anniversary of this book's publication, and I am including a link to an article and interview.
