THE CASUALTIES1 OF WAR: A HISTORICAL APPROACH ON THE BASIC TRAINING OF PAVLO HUMMEL AND THE VIETNAM CONFLICT

Abstract

Author(s): Timu癟in Bu?ra EDMAN

The Vietnam War, which started on March 15, 1965 and ended as a twist of fate on March 15, 1973, was one of the bloodiest confrontations of recent Vietnamese history. This wasn’t only a conflict between ideological clashes or nations, this was a conflict within the lives of young people and naïve souls. David Rabe was a veteran who joined this war and re-explored the conflicts in Vietnam through Pavlo Hummel, a young and “juvenile” American soldier who “got no beard, no ways to shave” (49, Rabes). The play focused on the progress of the training that young Pavlo Hummel received. In this essay, his struggle to become a “real man” among the ranks of soldiers will be juxtaposed with the historical facts and their psychology during and after the war that convey the reality of how North Vietnamese and Americans grasped each other.
