About this title:

Synopsis: Sent to Vietnam after being drafted, Carl makes friends with both the black and white members of his company in spite of racial tensions and learns harrowing truths about life and death when his optimism proves false. Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam was a finalist at the 2001 Frankfurt eBook Awards, along with works by Joyce Carol Oates and David McCullough.

Review: "Echoes of Joseph Heller's "CATCH-22, written about an earlier war, are seen in the surrealism of the scene, which Carl himself describes as a comic book cutout, a brutal illumination of his childhood games."
- KnowBetter.com
"Drawn from the author's own experience as an Army soldier in Vietnam, Clayton deftly portrays an innocent abroad in the development of his protagonist, the likable but naive Carl Melcher."
