Nixon, Vol. 2: The Triumph of a Politician, 1962-1972
Simon & Schuster, January 1989. First Edition. Hardcover. Used - Very Good / Very Good. Item #620416
A GREAT ASSOCIATION COPY. Signed and with an outstanding full page inscription by author Stephen Ambrose to a fellow writer, referencing noted military historian and journalist S.L.A. Marshall (who was also the recipient's grandfather): 'For John Marshall Looking forward to your work on SLAM - a man not unlike Nixon, sometimes less than careful with the truth, a man of great passion (often misplaced and inappropriate), yet a man who did great things. Sincerely S E Ambrose.' For several of his books, Ambrose relied heavily on Marshall's WWII after-action research for the US Army. John Marshall later published a 3-part series of articles on his Grandfather. A very good copy of the first edition, first printing (with complete number line). Has some reading and shelf wear; Ambrose has blotted the 'For' in the inscription to rewrite it.
