Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Experiences of a severely disabled World War I veteran which relates the horrors of war.

About the Author

His more than sixty screenplays include Spartacus, Exodus, Papillon, and the Academy Award-winning The Brave One. Johnny Got His Gun is the most highly-acclaimed work of Mr. Trumbos remarkable career.

This is a horrifying book. Not the writing itself, the contents. It is one you cannot put down and with the advances in medicine today, what happened to the hero could possibly happen today. I read this book many, many years ago but never forgot it. I loaned out my copy and it conveniently disappeared so if you buy it, safeguard it or you may not get it back.
