Jarhead Zusammenfassung

Jarhead: A Solder's Story of Modern War Anthony Swofford

Anthony Swofford's grandfather fought in WWII; his father fought in Vietnam; and he - a directionless, testosterone-battered teenager - became a scout/sniper in the marines and fought in the Gulf War. His account of that time is also part of a lineage - after Wilfred Owen, Norman Mailer, Michael Herr and Tim O'Brien, it brings the raw and searing tradition of soldiers' stories up to date. A harrowing yet inspiring portrait of a tormented consciousness struggling for reconciliation and peace, JARHEAD is authentic, revelatory and brilliantly crafted.

Jarhead Bewertungen

"A bayonet in the eye...brutal and unforgettable."

--"The Sacramento Bee"

"A brutally honest memoir...gut-wrenching frontline reportage."

--"Entertainment Weekly"

"A searing contribution to the literature of combat."

--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"

William Boyd

Author of "Any Human Heart"

A scathingly honest and bleakly powerful book. A hugely disturbing insight into the minds of the very young men who long to go to war.

Jonathan Shay, M.D., Ph.D.

Author of "Odysseus in America" and "Achilles in Vietnam"

This memoir is not pretty -- but veined with beauty. It is as outrageous, irreverent, funny, and obscene as an Aristophanes comedy, and as rich in pain and moral understanding as the "Iliad." Anthony Swofford: remember this name.
