Review - The Brig

My rating:

In spite of recent events, the Vietnam War remains one of America’s most controversial foreign entanglements. It was the first ’television’ war, in which the brutalities of conflict were brought right into people’s living rooms every night. The result was perhaps the first time any war was openly debated in American society, and that included the rank and file of the armed forces. Against this background, the unnamed narrator of “The Brig”, a seminary dropout, joins the navy.
