9781517298319: Three Soldiers

The company stood at attention, each man looking straight before him at the empty parade ground, where the cinder piles showed purple with evening. On the wind that smelt of barracks and disinfectant there was a faint greasiness of food cooking. At the other side of the wide field long lines of men shuffled slowly into the narrow wooden shanty that was the mess hall. Chins down, chests out, legs twitching and tired from the afternoon's drilling, the company stood at attention. Each man stared straight in front of him, some vacantly with resignation, some trying to amuse themselves by noting minutely every object in their field of vision,—the cinder piles, the long shadows of the barracks and mess halls where they could see men standing about, spitting, smoking, leaning against clapboard walls. Some of the men in line could hear their watches ticking in their pockets.

From the Publisher:

A deft chronicler of the American experience, John Dos Passos has taken his place alongside his contemporaries, Ernest Hemmingway and William Faulkner. In Three Soldiers, he introduces readers to a Harvard aesthete who joins the army out of idealism, and his two buddies. One by one, their illusions crumble under the tyranny, red tape, and boredom of the military. The soldiers' reactions range from bitterness to rage, and--for one--murder, in this vivid portrayal of human spirit caught in the grip of war.

From the Back Cover:

“I regard Dos Passos as the greatest writer of our time.” — Jean-Paul Sartre
