About this Item: McGraw Hill, New York, 1961. Cloth. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First American Edition. First Edition-First Printing. A superb fine copy in an unclipped and very good dustjacket. This copy is signed by Bob Donovan on the half title page--signature only--no inscriptions. A clean and tight copy with only light dustiness to the page edges. Blue and black cloth boards with mapped pastedowns and endpapers. The dustjacket is unclipped with very light edgewear to the head and heel of the spine and partial extremities--with only one small 1/4" closed end tear. A great collectible copy. The exploits of the former President in World War II--the facts of which are well known--but this book provides the intensity of just what the servicemen went through during the War and how the courage of Kennedy inspired his men to survive--a precursor of how he inspired a country as the President of the United States. Protected in a new acrylic jacket cover. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # cfe13301
