The Thin Red Line
This realistic novel follows the infantrymen of C-for-Charlie company as they land on Guadalcanal during World War II. Some will earn medals while others dream of being evacuated before their inevitable demise. This unforgettable portrait of war captures the thin line between sanity and madness, life and death. With a foreword by Francine Prose, The Thin Red Line is a strong, honest, and ambitious novel reminiscent of Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage.
