    In this auction you may bid for

    A brand new, shrink-wrapped copy of IRAQ by Michael Yon.

    Amazon.com: Iraq: Inside the Inferno, 2005-2008 (9780982716359): Michael Yon, Karen Kraft: Books

    The version of the book has a plain black cover with the title in gold letters, as per my photograph.

    Kindly donated by jumpingjarhead as he's another good egg who supports 'Holidays for Heroes'.
    This book is much travelled, having for some reason been sent from Maine to Dorset via Windhoek, Namibia!

    The winning bid includes the rather interesting packing as well as postage to the winner at any UK or BFPO address.

    The auction will run until
    Wednesday, 4th April at 1800 hours (UK Time)



    All proceeds to Holidays4Heroes.

    Thank you, Dread. Anyone else? This is a rather excellent Tome and Yon is very highly regarded as a war reporter.

    Only one day left folks. I may well be driving at 1800 tomorrow, but the auction will be considered closed at that time. I'll do the hammer thing as soon as I arrive home.
