This product is currently sold out.
Rock n' roll psychedelic soldiers. This quintessential read is one of the greatest chronicles of the Vietnam War put to the page. Such a behemoth piece of literature it is, that it has inspired both films - Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket. With that kind of brass it demands to be read.
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.
