Notes

First edition, first printing. Twenty-two years after its publication, Humphrey Cobb's anti-war masterpiece was adapted into the acclaimed film of the same title, directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Kirk Douglas. The film was banned in France until 1974 due to its negative depiction of the French military.
