Time Passed by Robert Barlow, Jr. is a gut-wrenching reminder that good people are drawn into wars wherever they may occur, and not all conflicts are relatable to the society in which they live. This was particularly so for the Vietnam War, where sentiment for the fighting was always being challenged, and inevitably participation became toxic to a large sector of the population; around forty-seven thousand Americans were killed in combat. Time Passed takes a unique look at this period by spotlighting the lives of five individuals who become drawn together in ways unimaginable to their initial experiences. Their lives are not only catastrophically altered during the conflict but continually impacted, in some cases up to nearly forty years into their futures. Their stories will captivate you, and no one will be left with dry eyes after sharing their journey.
Time Passed by Robert Barlow, Jr. is one of these reads that leaves readers with a sense of disbelief at the depth of the human depravity at one end of the scale and endless love at the other. I am not ashamed to admit it brought tears to my eyes, not just on one occasion. It clearly showed that the heroes in these wars are not only those firing guns, and villains don’t always reside in enemy camps. Looking at someone like Colonel Allan Nevin, who brought this home in spades, I have no doubts things like this occurred; it sickens beyond belief, and missing in action barely covers what is due to this hero. Not only is this story engrossing in its raw honesty, but it is easy to read and very well compiled with a solid plot. There are brutally graphic scenes, which may not be to all readers' liking, but make no mistake; everyone must read this incredible book to honor the memories of all who suffered through this period of history.
