Description

‘I’ll never understand the fucking Army.’Prew won’t conform. He could have been the best boxer and the best bugler in his division, but he chooses the life of a straight soldier in Hawaii under the fierce tutelage of Sergeant Milt Warden. When he refuses to box for his company for mysterious reasons, he is given ‘The Treatment’, a relentless campaign of physical and mental abuse. Meanwhile, Warden wages his own campaign against authority by seducing the Captain’s wife Karen – just because he can. Both men are bound to the Army, even though it may destroy them.Published here in its uncensored, original version, From Here to Eternity is a raw, electrifying account of the soldier’s life in the months leading up to Pearl Harbor-of men who are trained to fight the enemy, but cannot resist fighting each other.
