THE ODYSSEY OF ECHO COMPANY

“Doug Stanton, one of our most artful practitioners of literary non-fiction, has long had a knack for finding stories that put a human face on war. Here is raw combat captured in all its pathos, exhilaration, terror, and sense of brotherhood. Novelistic in detail and compulsively readable, Stanton’s searing tale of war and homecoming will soon find its place on a rarefied shelf alongside MatterhornA Bright Shining Lie, The Things They Carried, and We Were Soldiers Once . . . And Young—which is to say, among the classics of the Vietnam War.”
