Guard of Honor

Cozzens, James Gould Author

9780156376099: Guard of Honor

Guard of Honor is a neglected masterpiece that stands comparison with the greatest novels of the Second World War--essayist Noel Perrin deemed it "probably the best war novel of the twentieth century."

James Gould Cozzens's Guard of Honor won the Pulitzer Prize in 1949. The novel balances a vast cast of intricately enmeshed characters as they react over the course of three tense days in September 1943 to a racial incident on a U.S. Army airbase in Florida. The reader is acutely aware of the war raging abroad and the effect it has had, or will have, on the multitude of servicemen who populate Cozzens's immense canvas. As Noel Perrin commented in The Washington Post Book World: "There is material for two or three hundred movies in Guard of Honor."

"No other American novelist of our time writes with such profound understanding of the wellsprings of human character and of the social pressures that help to form it," said Orville Prescott in The New York Times. As Brendan Gill observed in The New Yorker: "Every page of Guard of Honor gives the impression of a writer at the very top of his powers setting out to accomplish nothing less than his masterwork."

From the Back Cover:




"Every major war . . . has produced at least one masterpiece. For the Civil War, it's The Red Badge of Courage. For World War I,
A Farewell to Arms. As for World War II, there are numerous candidates . . . The Naked and the Dead, Catch-22, The Caine Mutiny, maybe a James Jones--and then there is a book that I think will one day be recognized as better than any of these: James Gould Cozzens's Guard of Honor."

--Noel Perrin,

The Washington Post Book World


"James Gould Cozzens has one of the finest talents and one of the most expert skills at work in American fiction. . . . He is not a literary man, he is a writer. There are a handful like him in every age. Later on it turns out that they were the ones who wrote that age's literature."

--Bernard De Voto
