"War - the ordinary man's most convenient means of escaping from the ordinary." -- Philip Caputo
Philip Caputo (born June 10, 1941) is an American author and journalist. He is best-known for A Rumor of War, a best-selling memoir of his experiences during the Vietnam War.

Caputo was born in Westchester, Illinois and attended Fenwick High School and Loyola University Chicago. He now resides in Norwalk, Connecticut and Patagonia, Arizona.

In 1965, as an infantry lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps, he was deployed to South Vietnam. He returned to the United States in 1966.

After serving three years in the Corps, Caputo began a career in journalism, joining the staff of the Chicago Tribune.Caputo returned to Vietnam as a foreign correspondent for the Tribune. He covered the fall of Saigon in 1975, and he served in Italy, the Soviet Union, and the Middle East.

In 1973, Caputo was part of a writing team that won the Pulitzer Prize for reporting on election fraud in Chicago.

Caputo's newest book, Acts of Faith (2005), tells the story of several aid workers at the height of the Sudanese civil war. The writing style and political perspective is very similar to A Rumor of War, and the book was well received by critics.
