Widely considered the greatest American novel written about World War II, and perhaps about any war, The Naked and the Dead secured Norman Mailer's position, at only twenty-five, as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. Based on the author's own experience, it is a spellbinding account of a platoon of American soldiers in brutal combat to reclaim a Pacific island held by the Japanese and to face the unimaginable, within and without.
A very good first edition, in the original cloth binding. Both front corners are bent slightly inwards, and there is a small bit of white material attached to the bottom front corner. Small amount of cracking to front and back cover folds. Slight bruising to spine. In a very good unclipped dust jacket, with some chipping to the top of the spine and slight loss of material to top corners.
All of our books that a have dust wrapper are covered in clear protective, removable film and are packed professionally in bubble wrap and a box for shipping so that they reach you in perfect condition.
