Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jones was a powerful naturalistic chronicler of certain essential realities of warfare and of the responses of men at war.” —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, both adapted for the screen. 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and Other Stories, The Merry Month of May, A Touch of Danger, Whistle, and To the End of the War—a book of previously unpublished fiction.

The writing is a bit uneven, but the story is compelling. WWII was over before I was born, but I grew up watching glorified movies of the era. I have a feeling that these books tell a more realistic story of the heroism, fear, boredom, and abuse faced by those who served. It is worth the money and the time to read.

This book shows life in the US military, warts and all. The trilogy begins prior to WWII and continues through Perl Harbor to depict the horrible events of the US war in the Pacific and the troop deployments in Europe.

This no pro-war novel. Every chapter asks the question, what was it all about? Rank and file soldiers are sent as cannon fodder into hopeless situations for, as one character puts it "property".

In this time of perpetual warfare this is an essential read for anyone thinking there was a glory time for the US military.

Seems to be all there and includes his occasional odd spelling notions just as he wrote it. At least so far it seems to be all there. A lot more convenient than the weighty paper volumes.

A fine book to read about the aspects of World War ll. To read a book like this is really special because it takes you back in time with our soldiers.

These are all books by a great author, so how could you possibly go wrong.
Thanks for such a great "deal" on classic novels.

This was a reread of mine. The books capture the essence of war in all its gore, fear, loyalty, and motivations that those engaged in combat experience is captured horrendously in Jones' books. Is already a classic in American literature and rereading it reminded me why. If you haven't read it, you should. Why? Because everything he captured in his books about war is still ongoing in the combat that our troops are experiencing on a daily basis today.
