Format: Hardcover
Hemingway's introduction states: "This book has been edited in order that...boys, as they grow to the age where they can appreciate it and use it and will need it, can have [a] book that will contain truth about war as near as we can come by it." As a result of careful selection and organization, this collection of war stories accomplishes what Hemingway set out to do. As a teacher, I've found these stories useful in class -- from Caesar's notes on his invasion of Britain and Charlotte Yonge's "Pass to Thermopylae" to Aldington's heartbreaking WWI story, "At All Costs." This collection contains the works of fine writers (Faulkner, Kipling, Forester, Crane, Kipling) and historical figures (Churchill,T.Roosevelt). As a parent, I am encouraging my adolescent son to read this book so that he will understand what others have done and what he may one day be called upon to do for his country. This book will one day be rediscovered and reprinted for a modern America once again engaged in a discussion of war and courage. In the meantime, join me in being grateful for these used copies which are available at (usually) reasonable prices.

Very well written stories of battle through the ages. Nothing glamorous here, just plain and accurate writing, often by a participant of the action. Several stories give pause for thought.

Format: Hardcover
'Men at War' is a compendium of war stories edited by Ernest Hemingway. Most of the stories are historical or first-person accounts of actual events. Hemingway has selected the tales for their literary quality, insight and experience of war. He starts with Caesar's invasion of Britain; William the Bastard's 1066 invasion of England; American Civil War accounts and much, much more. He's even included his fictional--but excellent--"fight on the hilltop' from "For Whom the Bell Tolls." A must read for Heminway fanatics.

Only the introduction, by itself, is worth a thousand books. Hemingway at its best. Actual, honest and eye opening, seemed to me he was writing this just yesterday instead of 70 years ago.

Gave to my husband for Christmas and he loved it, great book. I was happy that I was able to find this title in a hardback form at a decent price as the copy my husband was reading was falling appart. It had belonged to his father and it was beginning to crumble.
