Long DescriptionThe eBook edition and the Periphery Press "Trade Edition" (large 6"x9" format, superior quality) of Sand in the Wind are, at present, the only corrected and authorized editions available. " extraordinary tribute to the GIs who, as [Roth] did, served in Vietnam...powerful without being overbearing and moving without being mawkish....Nowhere else in the reams and reams I have read (and written) about the Indochina war...have I seen our troops so well portrayed and explained"        -The Washington Post "Sand in the Wind could become the major novel of the conflict....Nothing is contrived in this novel...[and] the...problems facing the... American soldier...are treated with perception and insight."        -Library Journal "Simplicity, intuitiveness, and naked truth are the reader's companions....The book is a must for all Marine leaders."        -Leatherneck "The few novels that have appeared have been so biased as to be either unfair indictments of the war itself or glorified tales of warriors running through the jungles. With...Sand in the Wind, the drought refreshingly is broken."    -Air Force Times "...Roth is a fine writer with a real talent for narrative, for creating character, for dialogue and a fevered humor which lends conviction to episodes of otherwise incredible horror."    -Commonweal "Sand In The Wind stands virtually in a class by itself for sheer power, uncompromising realism, and staggering impact. The reader is brought face to face with the ferocity and confusion of ground fighting....This book is a must on your reading list."    -Charleston S.C. News And Courier " voice to the men who fought and suffered in the Vietnam War."        -The Honolulu Star Bulletin " accurate, vivid, sometimes all too real account of...Marine combat infantryman in Vietnam...fascinating...the most accurate written description yet to have come out of the conflict..."        -The Milwaukee Bugle American "Sand in the Wind may just become the All Quiet on the Western Front or The Naked and the Dead of the Vietnam conflict....[T]he author's ear for dialogue, his eye for detail and his faculty for descriptive incident offer an account of men at war that would be just as credible if...published as [a] nonfictional...journal."    -King Features Syndicate "Roth demonstrates in "Sand in the Wind" that a gifted writer can make [you] believe. His novel is vividly realistic."        -The Sun "...unforgettable....It's all there, told with an honesty and directness that could only come out of the diary of mud-slogging...rifleman."    -The Fresno Bee "This giant of a novel about men at war is one of sheer power, uncompromising realism and staggering impact."        -The Abiline Reporter-News "Sand in the Wind is a superb novel...a book that commands our heart."        -The Daily Reflector, Greenville, N.C. "...a blistering, gut-busting giant among the war novels of our time."        -Genesis "...Sand in the Wind is the best of lot by a long shot."    -The Indianapolis News

Royal Mail 4-State Customer Code is used for the Royal Mail Cleanmail service. It enables UK postcodes as well as Delivery Point Suffixes (DPSs) to be easily read by a machine at high speed.

Each character is made up of 4 bars, 2 of which extend upward, and 2 of which extend downward. The combination of the top and bottom halves gives 36 possible symbols: 10 digits and 26 letters.

As the example right shows, the barcode consists of a start character, the postcode, the Delivery Point Suffix (DPS), a checksum character, and a stop character. The DPS is a two-character code ranging from 1A to 9T, with codes 9U to 9Z being accepted as default codes when no DPS has been allocated
