Publisher Description

"The best book to have been written about the Vietnam War" (The New York Times Book Review); an instant classic straight from the front lines.

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.

Phenomenal book

Fantastic book, a must-read if you have any interest in the Vietnam War. It’s right up there with Hell In A Small Place.
This is money well spent.

Dispatches

While I thing I would have liked the subject, I did not care for the way it was written. Too choppy, may just have been the lingo used during that period. I quit reading after two chapters.
