Annapolis, MD: Nautical & Aviation Publishing, (1982) dj. Hardcover - A handsome new edition of this novel of World War I, originally published in 1936 and considered one of Forester's masterpieces. It illustrates the catastrophic consequences of that war and is still required reading at many a military school. "[This]is a superb novel. It blends Forester's preference for military subjects and solid unreflective characters, his irony, his grasp of history and his gift for lean, hypnotic narrative." (The New York Times) A title in the Great War Stories with a new preface by Merrill L. Bartlett, USMC and the preface Forester wrote for the 1947 reissue. xiii, 263 pp. ISBN: 0-933852274.
