KIRKUS REVIEW

Thinly fictionized -- and I'd advise selling it as non-fiction, for there is no plot, it has a definite personal flavor, and there is little attempt to disguise familiar names. The story is woven through the thoughts and feelings of a boy who drove an ambulance first in Finland, then in France. It is a record of war today, with a terrifying here and nowness, a quickened intensity which comes through only in the face of death. The loneliness, the bravery, the desperation, the horror and the pity, all narrated with a young, tough-surfaced emotionalism.
