Reviews

"Brutal, direct, and powerful . . . The men are real, the words are real, death is real, imminent and immediate."--Los Angeles Times

"A rare and splendid accomplishment . . . strong and ambitious, spacious, and as honest as any novel ever written."--Newsweek

"[A] major novel of combat in World War II . . . reminiscent of Stephen Crane in The Red Badge of Courage."--The Christian Science Monitor

"The Thin Red Line moves so intensely and inexorably that it almost seems like the war it is describing."--The New York Times Book Review
