About the book

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.

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
