Críticas:

-To call it the best book about Vietnam is to trivialize it . . . A Rumor of War is a dangerous and even subversive book, the first to insist--and the insistence is all the more powerful because it is implicit--that the reader ask himself these questions: How would I have acted? To what lengths would I have gone to survive? The sense of self is assaulted, overcome, subverted, leaving the reader to contemplate the deadening possibility that his own moral safety net might have a hole in it. It is a terrifying thought, and A Rumor of War is a terrifying book.- --John Gregory Dunne, Los Angeles Times Book Review -Caputo's troubled, searching meditations on the love and hate of war, on fear, and the ambivalent discord warfare can create in the hearts of decent men, are among the most eloquent I have read in modern literature.- --William Styron, The New York Review of Books -Every war seems to find its own voice: Caputo . . . is an eloquent spokesman for all we lost in Vietnam.- --C. D. B. Bryan, Saturday Review -A book that must be read and reread--if for no other reason than as an eloquent statement against war. It is a superb book.- --Terry Anderson, Denver Post -This is news that goes beyond what the journalists brought us, news from the heart of darkness. It was long overdue.- --Newsweek -Not since Siegfried Sassoon's classic of World War I, Memoirs of an Infantry Officer, has there been a war memoir so obviously true, and so disturbingly honest.- --William Broyles, Texas Monthly "To call it the best book about Vietnam is to trivialize it . . .
