Review by Library Journal (2007-08-01)

Trumbo's horrific 1939 novel of World War I garnered the National Book Award and kudos from critics. The book resurfaced as one of the leading protest novels during the Vietnam era. With current events as they are, the antiwar book will no doubt find a new audience. This edition includes a new foreword by Cindy Sheehan and a readers' guide.

Book description

This was no ordinary war. This was a war to make the world safe for democracy. And if democracy was made safe, then nothing else mattered—not the millions of dead bodies, nor the thousands of ruined lives... This is no ordinary novel. This is a novel that never takes the easy way out: it is shocking, violent, terrifying, horrible, uncompromising, brutal, remorseless and gruesome... but so is war.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Book. This is a must read especially for all young men that are thinking of joining our Armed Forces. It is an Anti-War novel that follows the very twisted road of an injured soldier that is literally and figuratively ripped apart war. I really couldn't put this book down. There were parts that made me feel sorry for such a poor mistreated individual and then other empowering moments that will make you believe that there is hope. It is a rollercoaster of a story with an ending that fits. Great Book. Well Done. 04/28/2009
