The Things They Carried (by Tim O’Brien)

Hello and welcome to Dogania.
I would like to make regular posts on books I read. At least a photo or a brief paragraph will be enough. I also encourage you to add your comments about them.
I am not sure how to range it; a fiction, an autobiography, or short stories. When you read the book you feel like this is what really happened to Tim O’Brien in Vietnam. Every chapter independently tastes a beautiful short story. A war story, a love story…
When I was reading this book I felt Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-5. Did anyone else have this reaction?
If you go as s soldier for a military operation abroad, what will you carry in your pockets or in your bag?
A photo? An object? Some candies?
