Book Description Harper & Row, 1979. hardcover. 1st Edition. New York. 1979. Harper & Row. 1st Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. 154 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by John Sposato. 0060117826. keywords: Literature America Vietnam War. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 4443
