Synopsis

James Ramon Jones was an American author known for his explorations of World War II and its aftermath. His novel, From Here to Eternity, won the Nation Book Award in 1952. This action-drama novel is set in the 1930’s in Hawaii, and culminates in the assault on Pearl Harbor in December of 1941. Although the book may appear to be solely a war novel, it has been touted as the best account of life in the peacetime army ever written.  With brilliantly descriptive scenes and richly detailed characters, the author captures and holds the readers interest.
