Three classic World War II novels in one collection, including the National Book Award winner From Here to Eternity. An army base at Pearl Harbor. The jungles of Guadalcanal. A veterans hospital on the home front. Inspired by his own experiences in the US Army, author James Jones’s World War II Trilogy stands as one of the most significant achievements in war literature. This compilation includes: From Here to Eternity Pearl Harbor, 1941. A challenging young private is transferred to a unit where the commander is determined to make his life hell. This edition includes scenes and dialogue censored for the novel’s original publication. A true classic, From Here to Eternity was made into an Academy Award–winning film and a television mini-series, as well as adapted for the stage. The Thin Red Line The invasion of Guadalcanal ignites a six-month battle for two thousand square miles of jungle and sand. But the soldiers of Charlie Company are not of the heroic mold. The unit’s captain is too intelligent and sensitive for the job, his first sergeant is half mad, and the enlisted men begin the campaign gripped by cowardice. This searing portrait of jungle combat has been adapted twice for feature films. Whistle After a long journey across the Pacific, a ship finally lands on American soil. For the soldiers’ loved ones, it’s a celebration. But on board, hundreds of men are broken and haunted, survivors of the battle to wrest the South Seas from the Japanese Empire. Though on their way to heal in a Tennessee hospital, their road to recovery will take far more than mending physical wounds. This ebook features an illustrated biography of James Jones including rare photos from the author’s estate.

Martin Muntor has it in for the tobacco industry. He's dying of lung cancer and he's a dangerous man: he's smart and he's mad and he has nothing to lose. Muntor has it in for the tobacco industry. He doesn't give a damn who gets sacrificed as long as he can hurt the billion-dollar profits of Big Tobacco. The twisted journalist's plan is simple. He'll poison cigarettes with cyanide and slip them into convenience stores, restaurants and vending machines all over the U.S. He'll even leave deadly cigarettes in the playground of an elementary school. He knows the inevitable media frenzy will further his cause. But there's a complication: Nicholas Pratt, the CEO of Old Carolina Tobacco, Inc., has a bigger problem. He's trying to cover up his role in the disappearance of a company researcher who was preparing to go to the Department of Justice -- with evidence that Old Carolina was spiking the nicotine level of its cigarettes. Muntor's plot brings an unwanted spotlight to Pratt's illegal activities. Pratt hires an equally self-destructive man, Tommy Rhoads -- a man battling his own gambling and drinking demons. Chasing Muntor changes Rhoads, and as he gets closer to Muntor, he begins to see the madman's logic isn't so insane. Rhoads realizes Muntor kills people with cigarettes the same way tobacco companies do -- only Muntor expedites the process. When Rhoads finally gets Muntor's scent, there's no stopping him. But then there's no stopping Martin Muntor, either.
