Praise

“Mr. Trumbo sets this story down almost without pause or punctuation and with a fury accounting to eloquence.”The New York Times

“[It is] very hard to write about Johnny Got His Gun without being guilty of understatement or hysterics. It is a terrifying book, of an extraordinary emotional intensity.”Washington Post

“An extraordinarily agitating book, passionate in its language, potent in its emotional effect, a novel that tells in unsparingly honest words what a wickedly gruesome business war is, and how wickedly wasteful. Johnny Got His Gun, full of horror and hurt, will be a terrific and vivid experience for anyone who reads it.”Boston Herald

“It is hard to imagine a more persuasive argument for staying out of war than this smooth, savage, brilliant tale.”Chicago Daily News
