Editorial Reviews

Review

"Some of the most shattering prose on men in combat since Hemingway was the acknowledged champ.” —San Francisco Chronicle
 
“ . . . a powerful, moving novel that probes the heart of man’s most heartless activity—war.” —Chicago Sunday Tribune
 
“One of the significant writers of his generation.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
“Few men write as effectively about the American army as James Jones.” —Newsweek
 
“The only one of my contemporaries who I felt had more talent than myself was James Jones. And he has also been the only writer of any time for whom I felt any love.” —Norman Mailer

About the Author

James Jones (1921–1977) was one of the most accomplished American authors of the World War II generation. He served in the U.S. Army from 1939 to 1944, and was present at the attack on Pearl Harbor as well as the battle for Guadalcanal, where he was decorated with a purple heart and bronze star. Jones’s experiences informed his epic novels From Here to Eternity and The Thin Red Line. His other works include Some Came Running, The Pistol, Go to the Widow-Maker, The Ice-Cream Headache and Other Stories, The Merry Month of May, A Touch of Danger, Whistle, and To the End of the War—a book of previously unpublished fiction.
