The Last Bridge
NY, McKay, (1966). An early novel about the war, by a journeyman writer who later became well-known for several bestselling thrillers, including The Taking of Pelham One Two Three. John Newman's bibliography (Vietnam War Literature, second edition, 1988) lists only five books about American troops in Vietnam prior to 1966: two paperbacks, two vanity press titles, and Robin Moore's The Green Berets. This title is listed as Newman 11. Signed by the author in 1989. Small bump to spine base, else fine in a very good dust jacket with dampstaining visible on verso. [#028638] SOLD
