Atwell, Lester PRIVATE
New York: Simon and Schuster, 1958. First edition. Hardcover. Inner hinges just beginning to crack, a few small stains to the top page edges, else near fine; in a lightly shelfworn illustrated dust jacket that shows some light dampstaining, soiling, nicks, edge tears, and a small abraded area to the front panel.
Drawing comparison with THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE, this non-fiction novel is an account of medics with a battalion aid station of G Company, 345th Infantry Regiment, in Europe in 1944. "...single-most compelling and authentic account written about WW II."
