When "Why Are We in Vietnam"? was published in 1967, almost twenty years after "The Naked and the Dead," the critical response was ecstatic.

Jethroe, Texas's most precocious teenager, on the eve of his departure to fight in Vietnam, this story of a hunting trip in Alaska is both brilliantly entertaining and profoundly thoughtful.
