About This Item

Tuscaloosa: The University of Alabama Press, 2007. Near Fine condition in a bright and shiny Near Fine dust jacket. The jacket is only lightly rubbed. NO chips or tears. NO fading. NOT a library discard. NO owner's name or bookplate. NOT a remainder. Pages are clean and unmarked. Illustrated with b/w photos and maps. Bound in the original green boards, stamped in bright gold on the spine. From the dust jacket: "Much has been written about America's war in Vietnam, and an enduring and troubling subtext is the composition of the body of soldiers that made up the U.S. troop deployment: from the initially well-trained and disciplined group of largely elite units that served in the mid-sixties to what has been termed an 'armed mob' by the end of that decade and into the early 1970s. Drug use, insubordination, racial antagonism that often became violent, theft and black market dealing, and even 'fragging' (murder of officers and senior noncoms by disgruntled troops) marred the record of the U.S. military presence. Don Griffis served in the twin roles of legal officer charged at various times with the task of both defending and prosecuting servicemen, while at the same time leading combat patrols in 'search and destroy' missions against the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese enemy. EAGLE DAYS is a remarkable account of Griffis' personal record of experiencing what the military should do best - meet, engage, and defeat the enemy - and what it becomes when esprit de corps, discipline, and a sense of purpose decay.". First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine condition/Near Fine dust jacket. Illus. by NOT a library discard. 8vo. xvii, 174pp. Great Packaging, Fast Shipping.

About About Books

About Books (Genny and Michael Winne, proprietors, formerly of Parsippany, New Jersey) has been selling rare and OP books since 1985. Besides book fairs and mail-order catalogues, long-time collectors and dealers will remember our lengthy For Sale ads in the Antiquarian Bookman and similar magazines. Our inventory of over 40,000 volumes is especially strong in the specialties listed, but contains fine books in a variety of other fields as well. Because most of our books are stored in protective boxes, rather than on shelves, they cannot be viewed as a whole. If you wish to visit us to examine specific titles, please provide 24 hours notice and we will make them available for your inspection. Phone calls to (702) 750-2722 are welcome, but please, only between the hours of 8am and 10pm (west coast time).
