Reality and fantasy merge in thisfictional account of one private's sudden discussion tolay down his rifle and begin a quixotic journeyfrom the of Indochina to the streets of Paris. WillCacciato make it all the way? Or will he be yetanother casualty of a conflict that seems to have noend? In its memorable evocation of men bothfleeing and meeting the demands of the battle,Going After Cacciatostands as much morethan just a great war novel. Ultimately it's aboutthe forces of fear and heroism that do battle inthe hearts of us all.
