Gad a copy, it's gone now. It also goes under the name of the movie made from it.
My copy was titled "Full Metal Jacket ' and the cover said 'formerly 'the short timers' on it. Same book, different title.
A marketing game. When the movie came out, it was a hit so they renamed the book to sell more copies.
