Publisher Description

Former Marine Michael Miller, who did his tour of duty from 1958 to 1962, compares the struggles of soldiers in the Vietnam conflict with those of soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq, and juxtaposes soldiers’ combat experiences with the other war they face when they come home. In The Different War, Miller's sixth poetry collection, the voices of Marines convey with exceptional understatement the sounds of suffering, whether in combat or in recurring dreams of the maimed and the dying: "His eyes closing upon the charred remains / Of what had been his glory."  

Miller has written well of memories of war, if not his own then surely of imagined memories that could be true.
