Introducing the book Nothing and so be it trans by Oriana Fallaci
Oriana Fallaci was a young journalist who traveled to Vietnam during the 1969 war. He witnessed artillery battles up close, participated in combat missions of US Air Force aircraft, and did not hide any turmoil in this war from his eyes. He also risked his life several times and even went a few steps closer to death. Fallaci met real heroes in the war; Heroes who did not appear in the eyes of the people of the world, and he was the one who was fascinated by these sacrifices and the bloody events of the war.
The novel Life, War and Nothing Else is a beautiful and incredibly fascinating account of the events of a year of the Vietnam War, written by Oriana Fallaci in the form of a story. It should be noted that the author was shot and released without assistance in an area while preparing war reports, but was miraculously saved from death.
Beautiful parts of the book
Ever since I was born, my ears have been filled with the word flag and homeland, and I have always been taught that I should be proud of being martyred and martyred, and no one has ever told me why killing for theft is a great sin. While killing in military uniform makes you proud!
No, not being afraid is not easy.
How good it would be if we could always be happy to be alive.
War is a terrible tragedy for which nothing can be done but cry. We cry for someone we may have withheld a cigarette from one day and he is dead and will not return.
He hugged me with his injured legs and bloody hands and pulled me. Can you understand? This is called friendship and friendship is a beautiful thing. More beautiful than love.
In death war something is impersonal.
What good is writing for you when you do not know what I have written for you?
If misery is so great you no longer want to fight it, you just want to forget about it for a moment.
When we dismiss someone, we should no longer try to explain their mistakes, and when we look for the reasons for their mistakes, we have not completely dismissed them yet.
Sometimes you feel like two eyes are looking at you, but in reality they do not see you. Sometimes you feel like you have found someone you have always been looking for but have not really found. Many such things happen, and if they do not happen, it is a miracle.
The monkey is caught and chained and then taken to the customer so that the customer can burn different parts of the monkey’s body with his cigarette fire or pierce the monkey’s body with a knife. For example, his eyes and the monkey go crazy from the pain, and when he goes crazy, blood comes to his head, and then they take the monkey and knock! His skull is broken and his brain is eaten raw and bloody. It’s so delicious .
Sometimes I ask myself if life is not a scene where you are thrown at someone’s command and when you fall into it you have to go through it and there are thousands of shapes to go through it. Indian shape, American shape, Viet Cong shape …
Ever since I was born, my ears have been filled with the words flag and homeland, and I have always been taught that I should be proud of being martyred, but no one has ever told me why killing for theft is a great sin. , While killing in military uniform makes you proud!
