Synopsis

Ernest Hemingway witnessed many of the seminal conflicts of the twentieth century, and he recorded them with matchless power. Now, this landmark volume brings together Hemingway's most important writings on war.

Edited and with an introduction by Hemingway's grandson Seán and featuring a personal foreword by the author's only living son, Patrick, this volume includes selections from Hemingway's first book of short stories, In Our Time, as well as from A Farewell to Arms, his towering novel of World War I. Excerpts from For Whom the Bell Tolls, Hemingway's indelible portrait of life and love during the Spanish Civil War, along with his only full-length play, The Fifth Column, brilliantly evoke the tumultuous war-torn Spain of the late 1930s.

Passages from Across the River and Into the Trees vividly portray an emotionally scarred career soldier in the twilight of life as he reflects on the nature of war. Classic short stories, such as "In Another Country" and "The Butterfly and the Tank," stand alongside captivating selections from Hemingway's war correspondence during his nearly twenty-five years as a reporter for The Toronto Star and other papers. Among these journalistic pieces are the author's coverage of the Greco-Turkish War of 1922, a legendary early interview with Mussolini, and his jolting eyewitness account of the Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944.

Hemingway on War is a compelling collection of Ernest Hemingway's best writings about the devastating impact of human combat. Brought together for the first time, these works represent the author's penetrating and frank accounts of courage, fear, perseverance, depression, and hope in the midst of war.
