Men at War (1955)

Men at War, Crown Publishers; First Edition (1955).

Men at War, Bramhall House (1979). – this is the edition that I own.

In 1955 Ernest Hemingway wrote the 15 page Introduction to the book Men at War that was a compilation of 82 war stories selected by Hemingway himself. Hemingway’s first sentence of his Introduction reads “This book will not tell you how to die.” Hemingway dedicated the book to his three sons, John, Patrick and Gregory. This is a moving book that includes 1,072 pages of some of the most amazing battles that includes The Invasion of Britain by Julius Caeser as the first story.
