TIGER BRAVO’S WAR

IR VERDICT:

TIGER BRAVO’S WAR is Rick St John’s chronicle of one year (1968) commanding the 101st Airborne Division’s B Company against two enemies: the human, and a tropical landscape strange, visually striking, and deadly. Haunted by staggering loss—over fifty percent of the original members died—this historical account stands out from similar books by virtue of the author’s dedication to shattering “romantic” illusions of war via brutal honesty. Deeply conflicted value systems and greed make war our world’s constant undercurrent. St John attests to humanity’s dire need to maintain compassion and sanity by showing the results of their absence.
