This is a terrific novel. What could be more affecting these days than the story of a young man who goes off to fight for his country in a controversial war? No, we are not talking here about Dimwit Bush's wicked misadventure in Iraq. This is the Korean War, which, this novel makes clear, was well worth fighting. It is good to have such books, because I think most of us to do not know much about that war. Or the times, the late 1940s and early 1950s, which 'Invisible Hero' paints in vivid hues so that you feel you are in the picture. The story is well told--alternating time sequences create a mounting tension. And the main character, Tim Davis--the 'Invisible Hero' of the title--well, who can resist him? Novelist Larry Watson is right when he says in the blurb on the cover, Tim Davis is an 'uncommon common man.'
