About This Item

VG/VG. Hardcover with unclipped dust jacket. A tight, clean copy. Book without chips or tears to cover. Jacket has minor chipping to head of spine (see photo), now in mylar protector. Originally published by George H. Doran Company in 1921. This Modern Library edition published in 1932 with a new introduction by the author. ~~~From the dust jacket: "Three Soldiers . . . reveals the cant and manufactured romanticism of war. Thrjough the experiences of three men of the ranks, humanity's most ghastly venture in mutual destruction stands condemned as criminal and futile. Three Soldiers introduced a writer who has sine beome a major figure among American novelists. Upon this first book his reputation rests securely."

Synopsis

Part of the generation that produced Ernest Hemingway and Ford Madox Ford, John Dos Passos wrote one of the most grimly honest portraits of World War I. Three Soldiers portrays the lives of a trio of army privates: Fuselli, an Italian American store clerk from San Francisco; Chrisfield, a farm boy from Indiana; and Andrews, a musically gifted Harvard graduate from New York. Hailed as a masterpiece on its original publication in 1921, Three Soldiers is a gripping exploration of fear and ambition, conformity and rebellion, desertion and violence, and the brutal and dehumanizing effects of a regimented war machine on ordinary soldiers.
