From Here to Eternity      by James Jones

Diamond Head, Hawaii, 1941. Pvt. Robert E. Lee Prewitt is a champion welterweight and a fine bugler. But when he refuses to join the company's boxing team, he gets "the treatment" that may break him or kill him. First Sgt. Milton Anthony Warden knows how to soldier better than almost anyone, yet he's risking his career to have an affair with his commanding officer's wife. Both Warden and Prewitt are bound by a common bond: The Army is their heart and blood--and, possibly, their death.

From Here to Eternity re-creates the authentic soldier experience and captures, like nothing else, the honor and savagery of man.
