Join Marines Jack Armstrong and his unpredictable buddy Gearheardt as the war is cooked up at a White House pizza party. Then President Larry Bob Jones is forced to send the boys on a secret mission with anti-war movie star Barbonella to stop a war that has quickly gotten out of hand. Their trip to Hanoi takes them through deadly combat in South Vietnam and wild misadventures that propel their story forward in a boisterous satiric rush. Not since Catch-22 has there been such a laugh-out-loud anti-epic that captures so brilliantly the absurdity of modern war.

Review quote

"Set during a pivotal time in U.S. history and populated by a bizarre cast of characters, Phillip Jennings' zany novel is cynical, fast-paced, irreverent, thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining."--Bob Kerrey
