From Here to Eternity

'I'll never understand the fucking Army.'Prew won't conform. He could have been the best boxer and the best bugler in his division, but he chooses the life of a straight soldier in Hawaii under the fierce tutelage of Sergeant Milt Warden. When he refuses to box for his company for mysterious reasons, he is given 'The Treatment', a relentless campaign of physical and mental abuse. Meanwhile, Warden wages his own campaign against authority by seducing the Captain's wife Karen - just because he can. Both men are bound to the Army, even though it may destroy them.Published here in its uncensored, original version, From Here to Eternity is a raw, electrifying account of the soldier's life in the months leading up to Pearl Harbor-of men who are trained to fight the enemy, but cannot resist fighting each other.

About the Author

James Jones (1921-1977) was born in Robinson, Illinois and enlisted in the US army in 1939, serving in the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii during Pearl Harbor and later in Guadalcanal in the Pacfic, where he was wounded in action. He is the author of many acclaimed novels, including the National Book Award-winner From Here to Eternity and the classic of combat literature, The Thin Red Line.


A blockbuster of a book... raw and brutal and angry * The New York Times * The achievement of an exceptional novelist... Filled with a wide range of human emotions, with humour and nobility, with rage and love, with savagery and tenderness * New York Herald Tribune * Extraordinary and utterly irresistable ... a compelling and compassionate story * Los Angeles Times * Ferocious... the most realistic and forceful novel I've read about life in the army * The New Yorker * The only one of my contemporaries who I felt had more talent than myself was James Jones. And he has also been the only writer of any time for whom I felt any love * Norman Mailer * Certain places seem to exist mainly because someone has written about them. Kilimanjaro belongs to Ernest Hemingway. Oxford, Mississippi belongs to William Faulkner ... A great deal of Honolulu itself has always belonged for me to James Jones * Joan Didion * From Here to Eternity has fine qualities in abundance... No novel had so vividly - and shockingly, to a civilian readership - conveyed the brutality of peacetime army life * Times Literary Supplement *
