[Vietnam War Literature] Herr, Michael.
Dispatches.
A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Michael Herr went to Vietnam in 1967 virtually unknown as a writer but, armed with press credentials for Esquire Magazine, he quickly rose above the crowd of writers covering the war with his brilliant, unorthodox prose. Herr's six extended pieces in this collection capture the war and its participants like no other writer except for Tim O'Brian in his equally masterful "The Things They Carried." Herr was one of the original Gonzo New Journalists in the company of such literary trail-cutters as Hunter S Thompson, Tom Wolfe, Truman Capote and Gay Talese. Herr when not imbedded on numerous marine and army operations spent many off hours in the company of three other flamboyant correspondents: Tim Page, Dana Stone and Sean Flynn (Errol Flynn's son). Photographer Page would survive his experience in Vietnam but in 1970, while traveling by motorcycle in Cambodia, Flynn and Dana Stone (on assignment for Time magazine and CBS News respectively) were captured by communist guerrillas at a roadblock on Highway One. They were never heard from again and their remains have never been found. Herr found himself in as much danger as the soldiers he set out to document in a war that was more disillusioning than understandable. He was with the marines during the prolonged siege of Khe Sanh and most effectively captured the hallucinatory madness of the battle. "Dispatches" is as good as (war) writing gets; Herr puts the reader right where he is, so that his experience becomes yours which is about as close as most people would ever want to get to the real thing.

[Vietnam War Literature] Moore, Lt. Gen. Harold G. (Ret.) and Joseph L. Galloway.
We Were Soldiers Once...and Young. Ia Drang--The Battle that Changed the War in Vietnam.
A Fine tight copy with a previous owner's name on the front flyleaf in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. On Nov. 14, 1965, the 1st Battalion of the 7th Cavalry, commanded by Lt. Col. Moore and accompanied by UPI reporter Galloway, helicoptered into Vietnam's remote Ia Drang Valley and found itself surrounded by a numerically superior force of North Vietnamese regulars. Moore and Galloway here offer a detailed account, based on interviews with participants and on their own recollections, of what happened during the four-day battle. Much more than a conventional battle study, the book is a frank record of the emotional reactions of the GIs to the terror and horror of this violent and bloody encounter. Both sides claimed victory, the U.S. calling it a validation of the newly developed doctrine of airmobile warfare. Supplemented with maps, the memoir is a vivid re-creation of the first major ground battle of the Vietnam War. Photos.

[Vietnam War Literature] Nolan, Keith William.
Into Laos. The Story of Dewey Canyon II/Lam Son 719.
A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket . This work, presents a comprehensive command history, clear action, and a vivid but humane narrative. The first all-South Vietnamese offensive into Laos in early 1971 produced both an interruption of Northern buildups and a test of Vietnamization of the war, but despite a 10-to-1 casualty ratio and tons of captured supplies was seen to be so savage and damaging to the South and to American support forces that much of the military and the press deemed it a defeat. Nolan's arguments that it had positive effects are well presented and convincing.

[Vietnam War Literature] O'Brien, Tim.
The Things They Carried.
A Fine copy in a Fine, unclipped dust jacket. While this collection of stories involving a single platoon in Vietnam is referred to as a work of fiction it is difficult to determine where the line between fact and imagination begins and ends. "The Things They Carried" is considered one of the two best portrayals of the war experience in Vietnam along with Michael Herr's "Dispatches." "Things" is simply a tour-de-force of exquisite writing about the time, the place, and the men who experienced that particular conflict. If you were going to read only one book dealing with the Vietnam War experience,"The Things They Carried" should be that book.
