About the Author:

John Dos Passos (1896-1970), a member of the Lost Generation, was the author of more than forty works of fiction and nonfiction, including THREE SOLDIERS and MANHATTAN TRANSFER.

Review:

Few reviewers and readers took note of 'One Man's Initiation, 1917' upon its initial appearance, but Dos Passos's personal tale of the carnage of war and his own survival as a volunteer ambulance driver over the battlefields of France and Italy in 1917speaks vividly to readers of the 21st century 'lest we forget.'> (Virginia Spencer Carr, biographer of Dos Passos, A Life, Paul Bowles: A Life, The Lonely Hunter: A Biography of Carson McCullers, and Under)

I think Dos Passos came closer than any of us to writing the great American novel. 'One Man's Initiation: 1917' is one the exciting precursors. (Norman Mailer)
