Diamond Head, Hawaii, 1941. Pvt. Robert E. Lee Prewitt is a champion welterweight and a fine bugler. But when he refuses to join the companys 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 hes risking his career to have an affair with his commanding officers wife. Both Warden and Prewitt are bound by a common bond: The Army is their heart and bloodand, possibly, their death.
 
This new edition features an Afterword by George Hendrick, a James Jones scholar, who discusses the novels 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.
