Michael Herr was a war correspondent for Esquire between and His coverage of the war in Dispatches was ground-breaking for its presented a type of journalism that traded monotonous details for visceral descriptions.   The true story of an unsung female World War 2 hero, resistance fighter and Coast Guard pioneer mid-book, contains many relevant shots of Finch, others who figure in the story, and locations.

      The Art of War by Sun Tzu, the most important and most famous military treatise in Asia for the last two thousand years, with side-by-side translation and commentary, cross references, and PDF and text downloads of the full book.   During the war, with over million ASEs distributed (plus another 18 million donated books distributed by the Victory Book Campaign), many soldiers and sailors took up a habit of reading books. It is said that war is nine-tenths waiting, and many people grabbed a book out of sheer desperation for something to do.
