Cologne No. 10 For Menby Richard Morris
Counting bodies in Vietnam. In this earthy war/peace novel, comedy frames grim pictures of war. Morris weaves combat, a love affair, and military satire into a story that is by turns terrifying, gruesome, and mad, and one acted by a memorable cast of characters-grunts and hookers, Vietcong soldiers and spies, heroes and inane officers. It begins on a huge base in the Central Highlands in 1967 where Lieutenant Wilfred Carmenghetti falls in love with Can and smuggles her to a forward firebase. In the field he and his platoon win stunning victories, but spies plot his death, Vietcong soldiers attack the platoon, and Can leaves him. What follows is a surprising and fanciful comedic ending. Cologne No. 10 For Men is a book to make us fear, weep, laugh, and remember
