The New York Times' Web site is reporting the death of the author of thee 1976 book "Friendly Fire." I never read the book, but I remember it. It's about the death of a U.S. soldier in Vietnam, and it was made into a TV movie featuring Carol Burnett and Ned Beatty as the soldier's parents.
The book's author was C.D.B. Bryan. That was the guy's byline.
I don't know what The Times' hard-copy newspaper says, but its Web site has this headline:
C. Bryan, 73, 'Friendly Fire' Writer, Dies
