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.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 05, 1991 – American correspondent Herr's documentary recalls the heavy combat he witnessed in Vietnam as well as the obscene speech, private fears and nightmares of the soldiers. ``Herr captures the almost hallucinatory madness of the war,'' said PW. ``This is a compelling, truth-telling book with a visceral impact, its images stuck in the mind like shards from a pineapple bomb.''

Dispatches

Best book on Vietnam, period. Buy this, you will not be disappointed!!!

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.
