  Slaughterhouse-Five (taken from the name of the building where the POWs were held) is not only Vonnegut's most powerful book, it is as important as any written since Like Catch- 22, it fashions the author's experiences in the Second World War into an eloquent and deeply funny plea against butchery in the service of authority.   Slaughterhouse-five, Or, The Children's Crusade A Duty-dance With Death (Book): Vonnegut, Kurt: A special fiftieth anniversary edition of Kurt Vonnegut's masterpiece, a desperate, painfully honest attempt to confront the monstrous crimes of the twentieth century (Time), featuring a new introduction by Kevin Powers, author of the National Book Award .
