He later chronicled those experiences in his memoir, Dispatches. He is the author of three other books, The Big Room, Walter Winchell, and Kubrick, and coauthor of the screenplays for Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket. He died in 2016. Robert Stone, a National Book Award winner, lives in New York City.

Reviews

"The best book I have ever read on men and war in our time."--John le Carr "In the great line of Crane, Orwell, and Hemingway . . . Herr reaches an excruciating level of intensity . . . He seems to have brought to this book the ear of a musician and the eye of a painter . . . The premier war correspondence of Vietnam."--The Washington Post " . . . Dispatches puts the rest of us in the shade."
--Hunter S. Thompson
