    Heh

    You do know that Slaughterhouse Five is about World War 2 and not about Veitnam, right? Yeah, cos it's about World War 2. The Dresden fire storm that the book is about was in GERMANY. He even states on page 10, 'World War Two had certainly made everybody tough.' read all of page ten, it talks all about world war two and Vonneguts experiences in it. He even talks about going BACK to Dresden in 1967, when in 1967 that was when Vietnam was happening. Anyway, i just wanted you to know the book is about Germany and not Veitnam.
