The Things They Carried (1990) is a collection of linked short stories by American novelist Tim O'Brien, about a platoon of American soldiers fighting on the ground in the Vietnam War. His third book about the war, it is based upon his experiences as a soldier in the 23rd Infantry Division. O'Brien generally refrains from political debate and discourse regarding the Vietnam War. He was dismayed that people in his home town seemed to have so little understanding of the war and its world. It was in part a response to what he considered ignorance that he wrote The Things They Carried.

《士兵的重负》是提姆·奥布莱恩的一本有关越南战争的半自传性短篇故事集。该故事围绕着越战中美国军队的一个排而写。本书最早于1990年出版。因为作者坚信他的信念与真谛能通过这种方式更好的传达,本书是一本明显的后设小说。书中很多人物都是半自传性。
