"Flawless...such mastery of narrative, imagery and feeling, the prerequisites for great prose" -- Edna O'Brien on A Farewell to Arms * Guardian *
"A sparse, masculine, world-weary meditation on death, ideology and the savagery of war in general, and the Spanish civil war in particular" -- About For Whom the Bell Tolls * Sunday Telegraph *
"An excellent story-teller, intense and skilful" * Daily Telegraph *
"This noteworthy anthology presents some of Hemingway's most powerful writings on war... Hemingway's grandson has made a fine selection" * Tampa Tribune *
