Dispatches

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1977.

Price: $150.00

Good / Very Good. First edition. Contemporary owner's name on front fly, spine severely cocked, very light stain on bottom edges, thus good only in a very good dustwrapper with light edgewear. One of the best books of the Vietnam War, a series of reports sent by the author to Esquire magazine. First editions in acceptable condition have become quite uncommon. Sean Flynn, son of Errol Flynn, and Dana Stone are featured in this story and briefly mentions their capture by the Viet Cong. Several of the fictional characters mentioned were used as the basis for such films as "Apocalypse Now" and "Full Metal Jacket."
