WITH A FOREWORD BY PATRICK HEMINGWAY AND AN INTRODUCTION BY SEAN HEMINGWAY

In 1918 Ernest Hemingway went to war. He volunteered for ambulance service in Italy, was wounded and twice decorated. Out of his experience came A Farewell to Arms. Hemingway's unforgettable book recreates the fear, the courage and the comradeship of warfare with total conviction. But A Farewell to Arms is not only a novel of war, it is also a love story of immense drama and uncompromising passion.

This special edition lifts the lid on Hemingway's creative process. Included here are his early drafts, all 47 alternative endings and the author's 1948 introduction, providing a fascinating glimpse into the construction of this great masterpiece.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A most beautiful, moving and human book * Vita Sackville-West *
A novel of great power * Times Literary Supplement *
Flawless... such mastery of narrative, imagery and feeling, the prerequisites for great prose -- Edna O'Brien * Guardian *
It seems such simple and straightforward language, but it isn't. The first chapter of A Farewell to Arms is only two and a bit pages but there is almost every variety of sentence structure. It is incredibly artful writing, and part of the art is disguising that it is artful. -- John Harvey * Guardian *
Essential Hemingway...a gripping account of the life of an American volunteer in the Italian army and a poignant love story. * Daily Express *
