Slaughterhouse-Five is a supremely unconventional war novel based on the experiences of the author ("one of the best living American writers," according to Graham Greene) as a prisoner of war during the catastrophic fire-bombing of Dresden during World War II. The hero of the story, an American soldier who also endures and survives the fire-bombing, as well as subsequent adventures, eventually is to some extent reconciled to life as it is lived on Earth. But Vonnegut is not, and in this remarkable book he has expressed his terrible outrage.
