Im Westen Nichts Neues And Johnny Got His Gun from the Author: Stephanie Lynn Morrissey. Literature, films, and even the daily news often address war, an event that unfortunately has been a constant in modern society. Large scale, modern warfare with global involvement began with the First World War, and following the war, a global war literature boom occurred. Two bestselling novels whose anti-war themes still resound today, Im Westen nichts Neues (All Quiet on the Western Front) by Erich Maria Remarque and Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo, emerged from this sea of literature. Both of these novels focus on the pain that is inherent in warfare and its detrimental effects on society as well as on individual soldiers. The graphic imagery and anti-war sentiment that is present in these novels has generated controversy throughout their histories; however, the popularity of both works has prevailed, and Remarque and Trumbo's novels remain two of the most referenced in academic disciplines as well as in popular culture. This thesis explores the long-lasting success of these two works as anti-war novels, as measured by initial sales and popularity as well as by a plethora of mass cultural adaptations.

Komma from the Author: Antonia Hirsch. Komma, an artist's book by Antonia Hirsch, is a modified facsimile of Dalton Trumbo's 1938 anti-war novel Johnny Got His Gun. The original book describes a soldier who has lost all of his limbs, his face and consequently the ability to communicate. Addressing issues of censorship and instrumentalization, Hirsch's version of Trumbo's novel has been reedited to include commas--punctuation entirely missing from the original.

Johnny Get Your Gun from the Author: John Ball. Johnny Get Your Gun (also known as Death for a Playmate) is the third in the Virgil Tibbs mystery series that began with In the Heat of the Night. In this story, a nine-year-old boy, lonely after a family move, shoots an older child who stole something from him, thus igniting the militant blacks and racist whites of 1960s Pasadena into a black-white conflict involving riots, brutalities, a chase through Disneyland, and a heart-warming as well as heart-breaking scene toward the end of the book that takes place in a baseball park of the California Angles. Here you will find childhood gone awry, racism that ought shock but in context does not (we know it too well), and political conflicts that add fuel to the fire. This is a first rate suspense novel.

The Good Soldiers from the Author: David Finkel. In January 2007, the young and optimistic soldiers of the 2-16, the American infantry battalion known as the Rangers, were sent to Iraq as part of the surge. Their job would be to patrol one of the most dangerous areas of Baghdad. For fifteen months, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Finkel was with them, following them almost every grueling step of the way. The resulting account of that time, The Good Soldiers, is a searing, shattering portrait of the face of modern war. In telling the story of these soldiers, both the heroes and the ruined, David Finkel has also written a classic work of war reporting.
