The Arnheiter Affair
NY, Random House, (1971). The account of a "mutiny" at sea off the coast of Vietnam in 1966, in which a tyrannical Navy commander was relieved of his command after a series of arbitrary and capricious actions. Inscribed by Sheehan, who was the UPI bureau chief in Saigon from 1962-64 and later covered the war for The New York Times, in addition to providing the Times with the Pentagon Papers. Sheehan's next book, A Bright Shining Lie, also about the Vietnam War, won the Pulitzer Prize. Minor foxing to edges of text block; near fine in a near fine, price-clipped dust jacket with wear at the corners and crown. [#028701] SOLD
