Ernest Hemingway witnessed many of the seminal conflicts of the twentieth century, as a Red Cross ambulance driver during the First World War and during his twenty-five years as a war correspondent. This edition offers an unparalleled portrayal of the physical and psychological impact of war and its aftermath. It contains extracts from A Farewell to Arms and For Whom the Bell Tolls, some of Hemingway's very best short stories, his only full-length play, The Fifth Column as well as selections from his wartime journalism. Hemingway on War represents the author's penetrating chronicles of perseverance and defeat, courage and fear, and love and loss in the midst of modern warfare.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Out of his somber materials - fear, confusion, death - he made great beauty. His short story 'In Another Country' begins with a paragraph exquisite in its spare lyricism and resignation" * New York Times *
"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 *
