    War Trash, the extraordinary new novel by the National Book Award-winning author of Waiting, is Ha Jin's most ambitious work to date: a powerful, unflinching story that opens a window on an unknown aspect of a little-known war--the experiences of Chinese POWs held by Americans during the Korean conflict--and paints an intimate portrait of conformity and dissent against a sweeping canvas of confrontation. Set in 1951-53, War Trash takes the form of the memoir of Yu Yuan, a young Chinese army officer, one of a corps of ... Show more

Reviews of War Trash

Overall customer rating: 5.000
PaulK

Excellent, Thought-Provoking Book

by PaulK on Apr 23, 2007

War Trash is an engaging, exciting, and depressing account of life in a US army POW camp during the Korean war. At the beginning of the war, the protagonist finds himself fighting for a cause for which he cares little--and then again after being captured. In this book, Ha Jin vividly and masterfully portrays life in a POW camp. But much more importantly, he delves into the psyches and personalities of war prisoners, and examines the personalities that support nationalism and communism. I highly recommend War Trash, especially for its insight into the politics of revolution and national rebirth.
