This is a long, satisfying, commanding novel of the soldiers who were poised on the brink of real manhood when World War II flung them unceremoniously into that abyss. Private Robert E. Lee Prewitt is the nonconformist hero who refuses to box at Schofield Barracks and is slowly destroyed by his own rebelliousness. Around him, others are fighing their own small battles--and losing. It's worth noting that Jones' 1951 audience was shocked by his frank language and the sexual preoccupations of his characters. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I would recommend not getting this restored edition. Much too long and wordy, it takes a lot away from the story.Published 2 months ago by JDerrel
I'm at 35 percent, and seriously considering not investing any more time in it. Very boring. Although I've never seen it, the movie is supposed to be a classic. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Eric H
