Review

"Nightmarish masterpiece of realism."--Celeveland News

"The most important American novel since Moby Dick."--Providence Journal

"The best novel to come out of the . . . war, perhaps the best book to come out of any war."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Brutal, agonizing, astonishingly thoughtful."--Newsweek

"Vibrant with life, abundant with real people, full of memorable scenes. To call it merely a great book about the war would be to minimize its total achievement."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Best novel yet about World War II."--Time
