about this book

Winner of the National Book Award, this bestseller describes army life in Hawaii on the eve of Pearl Harbor.
In this magnificent but brutal classic of a soldier's life, James Jones portrays the courage, violence and passions of men and women who live by unspoken codes and with unutterable despair. . .in the most important American novel to come out of World War II, a masterpiece that captures as no ther the honor and savagery of men.

"From Here to Eternity is the work of a major new novelist. To anyone who reads this immensely long and deeply convincing story of life in the peacetime army, it will be apparent that in James Jones an original and utterly honest talent had restored American realism to a pre-eminent state in world literature."-- Books of the Century, the New York Times review, February 1951
