Sinopsis: (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)
Written on the front lines in Vietnam, Dispatches became an immediate classic of war reportage when it was published in 1977.
From its terrifying opening pages to its final eloquent words, Dispatches makes us see, in unforgettable and unflinching detail, the chaos and fervor of the war and the surreal insanity of life in that singular combat zone. Michael Herr?s unsparing, unorthodox retellings of the day-to-day events in Vietnam take on the force of poetry, rendering clarity from one of the most incomprehensible and nightmarish events of our time.
Dispatches is among the most blistering and compassionate accounts of war in our literature.
Sinopsis: When Michael Herr went to Vietnam in 1967 he was virtually unknown as a writer. But with "Dispatches" he brought us a terrifying account of what it was like to fight in, and survive, the war in Vietnam. These are his journals, written with immediacy and sympathy of the facades and falsities that surround him. He sums up the colossal waste of war, while keeping hold of the real people, places and events at the heart of it.
