With a new Introduction by E. L. Doctorow 'A terrifying book, of an extraordinary emotional intensity' Washington Post Swimming in and out of consciousness, an American soldier called Joe Bonham comes to realise that he's been wounded in a mortar attack. But it is only as he pushes through memories and perplexing dreams that he comes to realise the full extent of his horrifying injuries. Written in the 1930s about the horrors of the First World War, Johnny Got His Gun was the most influential protest novel of the Vietnam War, and remains compelling and unforgettable, an unflinching account of the human cost of conflict. 'Powerful . . . An eye-opener' Michael Moore 'As sharp as bloodied barbed wire' Time
