Descrizione libro Harper & Row, 1979. hardcover. 1st Edition. New York. 1979. Harper & Row. 1st Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. 540. 154 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by John Sposato. 0060117826. keywords: November 28. inventory # 4443. FROM THE PUBLISHER - From its opening pages in Marine boot camp on Parris Island to the excruciating Suspense of its climatic finale during the jungle battle for Khe Sanh, The Short Timers is a brilliant and savage reenactment of the descent into barbarism that formed the bottom line of the American intervention in Viet Nam. Terse and brief as a scream, The Short-Timers traces the career of a sardonic narrator (‘Joker’) through the organized sadism of basic training into a distasteful assignment as a combat reporter, and finally to the command of a platoon of ‘grunts’ in the chaos that followed the Tet Offensive. It is a story about some of the most harrowing experiences Americans have ever been made to endure, the story of a gallery of young Americans who are turned into violence freaks while still remaining individuals – comic, pathetic, repellent, proud and caring. Sometimes surreal sometimes all too realistic and, without warning, funny, here is a novel that is - like its subject – as incongruous and undeniable as an exploding booby trap. It is a brutal novel because it is about the brutality of men trained to violence; but it is a book filled with the very rare and great compassion available to men who have survived the loss of their humanity in combat. This is a truly remarkable accomplishment for a first novel - which it is - or a tenth. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Codice libro della libreria 4443

Descrizione libro Harper & Row, 1979. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: fine. First edition. Firts edition (stated). Hardcover. 154 pp. A tight, fine example, bit of foxing to the edges of the text block. in fine, bright, crisp, price clipped dust jacket. Basis for the 1987 Stanley Kubrick film "Full Metal Jacket". One of the most notable (and the scarcest) Vietnam-themed novels, a book that, from its opening pages in Marine boot camp on Parris Island to the climactic finale during the jungle battle for Khe Sanh is a brilliant and savage reenactment of the barbarism that formed the bottom line of American intervention in Southeast Asia. Terse and tense, the novel traces the career of its narrator "Joker" through basic training, an assignment as a combat reporter and finally to the command of a platoon of "grunts" in the chaos that followed the Tet offensive.Author Hasford was himself a Marine Corps veteran.
