Lost Soldiers4.25 4 5 Author: James Webb
Ex-Marine Brandon Condley went to Vietnam and never quite came home. Instead, he fought and lost a war, loved and lost a woman, and fell in love with a country he could not save.
Now Condley has returned to the teeming, tangled, tragically beautiful world of postwar Vietnam on behalf of the US government, to search for the remains of MIAs.
On discovering a body with dog tags that do not match it, he begins to unravel a mystery long forgotten, of violence, murder and a devastating betrayal...
A thought-provoking, rapier-sharp and thrilling vision of Vietnam, Lost Soldiers is perfect for fans of Tim O’Brien, Karl Marlantes and Apocalypse Now.
Praise for Lost Soldiers
‘Powerful… riveting’ The Washington Post

‘This gripping tale is a page-turner, but is also much more… a moving saga of revenge, love, loyalty, honour, and, ultimately, redemption’ Booklist
‘The most complete, rich and dynamic portrait in American fiction so far of Vietnam after the last American helicopter departed’ The Washington Times
‘Webb has a sniper’s eye and a lover’s heart and is at his best here’ Playboy
