    The definitive edition of the classic novel of love during wartime, featuring all of the alternate endings: ';Fascinatingserves as an artifact of a bygone craft, with handwritten notes and long passages crossed out, giving readers a sense of an author's process' (The New York Times).

    Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefieldweary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertionthis gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep.
