First Edition. From the library of novelist Kent Anderson signed by him with his ownership signature. Fine in a fine fresh dust jacket. Kent Anderson wrote the classic Vietnam War novel, Sympathy For the Devil (1987), considered one of the key books in Vietnam War literature. He went to Vietnam in 1969, where he served as a Sergeant in the Special Forces Green Beret. His service earned him the Purple Heart and two Bronze Stars, one with Oakleaf Cluster for valor. While not supporting the war philosophically, he certainly was and is an ardent supporter of his fellow veterans. After his tour in Vietnam he was a uniformed police officer in Portland, Oregon and in Oakland, California. These experiences formed the basis of Night Dogs, his acclaimed novel of the intensity of police life.
