It is truly not so much about the Vietnam War but a retelling of the Conrad novel. The other surprising omission is anything by Robert Olen Butler. He was a veteran of the war as well, and his stuff is some of the best story telling to come out of the war. Some of his short stories are perfect tales.
His writings have been some of the few by Americans who wrote about Vietnamese as much as Americans. Still, if one were using The Vietnam Reader for a class on the war, it would be easy enough to supplement it with the missing film and works by Butler. This may not be as thorough a review as some other books reviewed here, but I felt I could add a few comments to the discussion.
