These are his journals, written with such immediacy and sympathy, such an insightful understanding of the facades and falsities that surround him, that the reader is mesmerized. With Dispatches Michael Herr comes close to achieving the impossible: summing up the colossal waste and complexity of war, while keeping hold of the real people, places and events that comprise it. Every now and then a book is written that so completely sums up a time and a place it takes your breath away. This is the case with Dispatches, described by John Le Carre as 'the best book I have ever read on men and war in our time'.Hide synopsis
