Johnny Got His Gun can get pretty surreal at times, but we think Joe is being literal here: maybe he really is the nearest thing to a dead man on earth. Even Joe, of course, can't really tell us what death itself is like, so whether he can actually speak for the dead is debatable.   Johnny Got His Gun is a masterpiece. It's an anti war film, that takes the most extreme measures in discussing that subject. It takes our main character and puts him in constant bedrest as he.

Johnny Get Your Gun: A Personal Narrative of the Somme, Ypres & Arras. Johnny Got His Gun was fiction inspired by a gruesome true story about a Canadian soldier from World War I. During battle, a mortar shell hits very close to "Johnny" Joe Bonham, causing severe physical damage.

He loses both legs, both arms, eyesight and hearing—nearly every physical bridge to the outside world—yet remains alive in an Army. "Johnny Got His Gun" holds a place as one of the classic antiwar novels. First published inDalton Trumbo's story of a young American soldier terribly maimed in World War I-- he "survives" armless, legless, and faceless, but with mind intact-- was an immediate bestseller.

This fiercely moving novel was a rallying point for many Americans who came of age during World War II, /5(14).John Ball's best since the MWA-award winning In the Heat of the Night sentimentalizes and polemicizes in spots but his heart's in the right place even if he rubs your nose in the message.

This one's about nine-year-old Johnny recently transplanted from Tennessee to Pasadena where a bigger boy takes his only possession (a radio) and smashes it. The phrase 'Johnny get your gun' was a rallying cry to get young men to enlist, once up on a time. Joe comes to the obvious conclusion that war is not all it's cracked up to be and that maybe medical technology has reached a morally ambiguous level.

Unfortunately, there's no one he can really discuss this with, as he slowly descends into madness.
