New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1947. First Edition. First printing. Inscribed and signed by the author "for Renée / a fellow-voyager to far ports," undated but apparently contemporaneous with publication.

Attractive copy of Bourjaily's critically acclaimed first book, a war novel based on the author's own experiences in WW2.
