This work is about the Vietnam war from a North Vietnamese soldier's point of view. It isn't particularly political, though it was banned in Vietnam for a time, perhaps still is, because it was critical of the war and of politics. A soldier's reflection on the atrocities of war and psychological damage war inflicts upon nations and upon the soldiers and citizens. I imagine a masters or doctoral thesis can be performed on Vietnam War novels and the dislocation of time as a stylistic device. For this novel, however, it is an absolute necessity stylistically to produce the effect the novel builds to near the end, so stick with it if you have trouble with that approach to plot.
The Sorrow of War (Vietnamese: Nỗi buồn chiến tranh) is a 1990 novel by the Vietnamese writer Bảo Ninh. The novel was Ninh's graduation project at the Nguyen Du Writing School in Hanoi. It tells the story of a soldier who is collecting dead bodies after a battle and then begins to think about his past. The novel won the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize.
