When John Dos Passos published this book in 1921, its explosive portrait of World War I shocked America. Instead of glorifying the Great War, he shows three men caught in a military machine that is as dangerous for them as the foreign terrain and the enemies they fight. Fuselli leaves San Francisco for the front lines in France, anxious to move up the military ladder of success. Chrisfield, a farm boy from Indiana, feels himself swept along as he marches in a sea of other soldiers. And Andrews, a classical musician, searches for a sense of direction and meaning as he joins the ranks. Each will be swallowed up and changed forever by a vast, faceless automaton - the Army.

Based on Dos Passos' own experiences as an ambulance driver in Europe during World War I, Three Soldiers is honored as a classic antiwar novel. Sweeping in its scope and drama, it is riveting historical fiction. Veteran narrator George Guidall's reading conveys all the conflicts and emotions that bombard the three recruits.

    " John Dos Passos is an author whom I had never read before but I am most assuredly happy to have found his works. "Three Soldiers" is an exceptionally well written book which gives the reader a fabulous look inside the emotional side of being a soldier during WWI. I hate spoilers so all I will say is that it is well worth your reading! "

    " I first read this book in high school because no one in my English class wanted to read it. I don't think the book had ever been checked out from the library. I recently re-read the book and enjoyed the book even more. The book focuses on three American infantrymen in World War I. We tend to associate anti-military sentiment with the Vietnam War but this books shows these feelings existed long before the American involvement in Southeast Asia. "

    " This is my favorite book on war I have ever read, which says a lot since I hate war and I generally don't like books on it. Hemingway, eat your heart out! "

    " My first experience with Dos Passos and I am looking forward to reading 1919 now. It really reminded me of The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, not in subject but in outlook and desperation of character. Each of the three soldiers ends up in his own desperate straits and finds their own way to a conclusion. What happens to them during the war and how their inner fortitude or lack of it help or hinder their progress makes for a heartbreaking story. "
