Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time 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. This new edition features an Afterword by George Hendrick, a James Jones scholar, who discusses the novel's origin and eventual censorship at the hands of its first publisher. Now the original language has at last been restored to the most important American novel to come out of World War II. From Here to Eternity re-creates the authentic soldier experience and captures, like nothing else, the honor and savagery of man. Foreword by William Styron "A work of genius." -- Saturday Review "Extraordinary and utterly irresistible . . . a compelling and compassionate story." -- Los Angeles Times "A blockbuster of a book . . . raw and brutal and angry." -- The New York Times "Ferocious . . . the most realistic and forceful novel I've read about life in the army." -- The New Yorker

display_descriptionJames Jones's epic story of army life in the calm before Pearl Harbor-now with previously censored scenes and dialogue restored At the Pearl Harbor army base in 1941, Robert E. Lee Prewitt is Uncle Sam's finest bugler. A career soldier with no patience for army politics, Prewitt becomes incensed when a commander's favorite wins the title of First Bugler. His indignation results in a transfer to an infantry unit whose commander is less interested in preparing for war than he is in boxing. But when Prewitt refuses to join the company team, the commander and his sergeant decide to make the bugler's life hell. An American classic now available with scenes and dialogue considered unfit for publication in the 1950s, From Here to Eternity is a stirring picture of army life in the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. This ebook features an illustrated biography of James Jones including rare photos from the author's estate.
