Let's talk war literature! For a very long time, Fields of Fire by James Webb was my favorite war novel. I first read it while I was in Afghanistan. I related to the drudgery, misery and general darkness of it. I'm also very partial to Matterhorn, and now the two are kind of equally locked for my favorite. I feel like the Afghanistan and Vietnam wars have far more in common than is different between the two of them. What's yours?
