The Things They Carried

Tim O'Brien

Family

A platoon of men go to war and become like brothers. They all had their good buddies but they all cared about one another. Some were closer than others.

Horror

Everyday and night they feared for their lives. They had to go out on ambush missions in the pitch black in an unknown place to them. They never knew if the enemy was right in front of them or not. Also there were many booby traps all over the whole are.
