Overview

The Searing Portrayal Of War That Has Stunned And Galvanized Generations Of Readers

An immediate bestseller upon its original publication in 1939, Dalton Trumbo’s stark, profoundly troubling masterpiece about the horrors of World War I brilliantly crystallized the uncompromising brutality of war and became the most influential protest novel of the Vietnam era. With a compelling new foreword by fellow award-winning writer E. L. Doctorow, Johnny Got His Gun is an undisputed classic of antiwar literature that’s as timely as ever.

“A terrifying book, of an extraordinary emotional intensity.”--The Washington Post

"Powerful. . . an eye-opener." --Michael Moore

"Mr. Trumbo sets this story down almost without pause or punctuation and with a fury amounting to eloquence."--The New York Times

"A book that can never be forgotten by anyone who reads it."--Saturday Review
