THE COMPLETE UNCENSORED EDITION • THE WORLD WAR II MASTERPIECE AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE READ • WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD

 

Diamond Head, Hawaii, 1941. Pvt. Robert E. Lee Prewitt is a champion welterweight and a fine bugler. But when he refuses to join the company’s boxing team, he gets “the treatment” that may break him or kill him. First Sgt. Milton Anthony Warden knows how to soldier better than almost anyone, yet he’s risking his career to have an affair with his commanding officer’s wife. Both Warden and Prewitt are bound by a common bond: The Army is their heart and blood—and, possibly, their death.

 

From Here to Eternity is the most important American novel to come out of World War II. Featuring an Afterword by James Jones scholar George Hendricks, this new edition restores the original language that was censored from the author’s magnificent but brutal classic, re-creating the authentic soldier experience and capturing, like nothing else, the honor and savagery of man.
