Coolio! Yesterday, I finally received NO BUGLES, NO DRUMS by CHARLES DURDEN.  A Vietnam novel that is considered a classic by those who have read it but, sadly, unknown to many.

Opening lines from NO BUGLES:
"Right off I knew things were gonna be f#@ked up as a picnic in a free-fire zone. Had to be. Number one in the Jamie Hawkins Index of Worthless Activities: everything that starts before noon. And here those silly sonsofbitches came at four f#@kin' a.m."

lol Nice start Charlie! (y)


Enjoy a pic of the only two DURDEN novels and scans of the 1976 Viking Press edition of NO BUGLE, NO DRUMS, including dust jacket photo of Charlie about 22 years before I met him.

For those who don't know my Charlie Durden story, you can check it out here:
