"Count Your Dead" (1968) is a powerful indictment of US involvement in the war in Vietnam. The recounts of manoeuvres and engagements and military strategy are particularly strong. The story follows the fortunes of an American officer, Bill Morgan, who is transferred to civil affairs work and finds himself at odds with combat officers and ultimately disillusioned with his country's conduct of the war. The book emphasizes senseless destruction in the Vietnam conflict.
