In 1918 Ernest Hemingway went to war. He volunteered for ambulance service in Italy, was wounded and twice decorated. Out of his experience came A Farewell to Arms. Hemingway's description of war is unforgettable. He recreates the fear, the comradeship, the courage of his young American volunteer, and the men and women he meets in Italy, with total conviction. But A Farewell to Arms is not only a novel of war. In it Hemingway has also created a love story of immense drama and uncompromising passion.
The book is in very good condition, with occasional corner creasing to the pages but otherwise clean. The dustwrapper is chipped to the edges and spine ends and has some light surface abrasions but remains an attractive wrapper. It has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.Sold
