[New York]: Dell, [1965]. First paperback edition. Signed by the author. Fine in pictorial wrappers with cover art by Velovsky. Author's second book, a powerful novel about a WWII Army transport corrupted by a strange and evil man. Makes The Caine Mutiny sound like a pleasure cruise, and evoked comparisons with Conrad and Melville from the critics. Signed copies of the author's early books are scarce.
