Ulysses Dream by Tim White tells the story of a young man who, by reason of circumstances, is sent to fight in the Vietnam War. The story follows his early life, his meeting with the one who would be the love of his life, his struggles, and then continues as he fights the Viet Cong and the atrocities he is forced to commit and to witness. Often listed as Missing in Action or left for dead, Ulysses overcomes harrowing events to remain faithful to his one true love. Defying the odds, Ulysses struggles with the concept of good and evil as he battles to save the innocent.
This amazing epic story is incredibly moving in its detail as it follows one young man as he determinedly pursues his destiny. The author, Tim White, writes with such emotion that I found myself thinking about this book long after it was finished. This is a book not just about one man, but about the inhumanity of war, the greed and evil of the world, and ultimately one man’s determination to change the view of the world regarding war. The injustice, the abominations, and the sheer cruelty are sure to make every reader strive for peace in this world. Also woven into the story is the love of a pair destined to be together, of family bonds, of the importance of heritage, and how faith can overcome the most challenging events. Told in the form of recollections by one of the protagonists works really well and adds credence to this haunting tale.
