I'll try to think of other books I would suggest. I'm not sure that reading TRL would give you any more insight. There are any number of reasons that soldiers don't talk about the war they were in: Most people aren't really interested for one. Most soldiers feel a sense of 'could have done better.' And there is almost always a survivors guilt to some degree. Almost all POWs broke the "unreasonable" code of conduct for POWs and are hard on themselves. And PTSD takes a great many forms. Yet, having suffered a bit myself, I still am not an expert. After my first tour in Viet Nam, I could not stand to be around those who had not experienced the war. And it became habitual. I pretty well got over it by the time I returned from my second and third year.
Thanks for the note.
