Len Deighton - Declarations of War

SYNOPSIS

In this book about men at war, Len Deighton slyly traps the reader into an involvement far deeper than he bargains for. A series of literary jump-cuts between actions as far apart as the Punjab and an S.A.C. base in Vietnam takes you inside the minds of men facing the bizarre situations which war produces. Deighton's unfashionable compassion for soldiers and his almost paradoxical hatred of war is the theme of his previous book Bomber. Here he expands and develops the idea that the strategies and machines of war push men into dehumanized, rnachine-like roles which they are very ill-equipped to cope with. With Declarations of War Len Deighton has written his most disturbing and most readable book to date. You'll come back to it again and again.
