FREE DOWNLOAD Ù The Thin Red Line James Jones À 1 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD The Thin Red Line They are the men of C for Charlie company “Mad” 1st Sgt Eddie Welsh Pvt 1st Class Don Doll Pvt John Bell Capt James Stein Cpl Fife and dozens just like them infantrymen who are about to land grim and white faced on an atoll in the Pacific called Guadalcanal This is their story a shatteringly realistic walk into hell and back   In the days ahead some will earn medals others will do anything they can dre A true masterpiece and one of my favorite novels Although it has all the realistic gritty detailing that any novel recounting World War 2 Guadalcanal should have it is so much The reader will indeed learn which gun is which and which rank is which They will understand what needs to happen to take a hill They will know what a crowded ship full of men will smell like They will come to understand the practical intricacies of making war But as anyone who viewed the recent version of the film will know the story is not one based on narrative but one based on a specific philosophy we are all as humans forever destined to never truly understand one another we are forever destined to never truly achieve the kind of empathetic meeting of heart mind soul that we may yearn for a yearning we may not understand or even recognize War is if it is anything an insane metaphor for that lack of understanding that true lack of connection and to be a part of that metaphor is to be in a way as insaneThis is a novel of many voices each individualized and each specifically uniue and amusingly detailed And yet there is a similarity to the themes that emerge from the thoughts of each of the characters whether they are trying to understand their brothers their girls back home their commanders their enemy their next target or the war itself the feeling of distance It is a melancholy and confusing feeling Each one blunders through his life in his own way barely grasping what is happening around him barely grasping what is happening inside himself as well The novel is epic in its depiction of war but it is intimate in its depiction of the levels of mystery within each of us and between us as wellIt is surprisingly funny at times James Jones has a mordant voice and he knows the ridiculousness of men how amusing our little concerns and irritations and idiosyncrasies can be when depicted at times gently but often pointedly He also knows that throwing dozens upon dozens of characters in the narrative will confuse and annoy the lazy reader but how else to illustrate the confusion of wartime The coming and going of bodies of places of times that all blur together Jones himself was a WW2 veteran and so the details are impressively laid out but what is even impressive is the poetic sorrowful mourning that is suffused throughout the novel one that builds and builds and builds It is hard to imagine the number of his fellows he saw slain and how it impacted him But beyond that to see the melancholy within the man not just the soldier not just the circumstance He is the rare author I would love to have known and yet the idea of his experience and his sadness is so intimidating it makes me feel like less of a grown man when thinking of the person who could write all of this down What have I done in my life in comparisonIt is interesting to compare the film with the novel The theme of the distance between humans is there as is the idea of many narrative voices recounting many different things but all ending in despair over our lack of ability to truly understand ourselves the world each other But Malick widens the melancholy even further by including his usual theme of man s distance from nature as well It works beautifully Two character differences stand out Pvt Witt and Cpl Fife In the film Pvt Witt is played by James Caviezel as a beatific savior of men spiritually connected to nature and prone to daring displays of bravery In the novel Witt is a spiteful hick also prone to daring displays of bravery but also an unrepentant racist towards all non whites and is filled to the brim with petty contempt towards all forms of authority I like both portraits but the novel s Witt seems so much human so much real You don t have to be a saint or even particularly likeable to be brave to save lives to accomplish daring deeds to be loveable He is a hero ignorant redneck and all precisely because he is not particularly heroic in thought only in deed He comes through again and againIn the film Cpl Fife is reduced to a couple cameos by Adrien Brody standing distraught by a soldier s corpse or looking terrified during a river crossing In the novel he is so much a dissection of the falseness of the concept of cowardice during war He is full of fear he calls himself a coward each path he chooses is one that has self protection at its core and yet his depiction is entirely sympathetic and rational what sane man isn t a coward when it comes to the insanity of war Who wants it who wants to be in it It is not something to run to it is something to run from Fife is the secret hero of The Thin Red Line the rational man not understanding the irrational world around him and rejecting any attempt to bend him to that irrational world s rules I can see how that character would not translate successfully to audiences yearning for heroes and so Fife in his entirety barely makes it to the screenThe book s great success may not just be in its depiction of the distance between humans but in the illustration of war as the ultimate insanity As we all know World War 2 was the Good War the one in which we all should be proud the one with truly golden heroes and truly evil villains the one we all are glad was fought and would have fought in if we could We had the right reasons after all at least that is my own perspective But a good war is still war and war entails the deaths of the young the destruction of lives and of love of cities and of countryside of innocence of tradition of everything So why do we love it so Love is Blind grim and white faced on an atoll in the Pacific called Guadalcanal This is their

written” Newsweek   “A major novel of combat in World War II reminiscent of Stephen Crane in The Red Badge of Courage ” The Christian Science Monitor   “ The Thin Red Line moves so intensely and inexorably that it almost seems like the war it is describing” The New York Times Book Review War is hell I first came across James Jones novel with the Terrence Malick film released in 1998 In that year there were two amazing popular war films released the other was Spielberg s Saving Private Ryan I liked them both However the Terrence Malick film was the philosophical and held a deeper meaning than that of Spielberg but both are different films different theaters of war and different messages It has taken me twenty years since then to finally read James Jones novel The book comes in at just over 500 pages long with chapters amounting to sometimes near 100 pages with no break inbetween So sometimes it became a grind but not an unpleasant one because I found that I became attached towards certain characters of which there are so many that it does become confusing to work out and remember casualties being transferred elsewhere and so on There is a roster at the beginning which helps understanding who is who in C for Charlie Company that the book is concerned with Guadalcanal August 1942 The start of the fightback against the Japanese in the South Pacific centering on The Solomon Islands the first invasion of a Japanese held location after their initial success in late 1941 As stated the book focus is centered around a specific Company C for Charlie who are reinforcements for the Marines who assaulted the island earlier on Green troops with no combat experience essentially I will try and compare the book with what I remember of the movie because a lot is different but some sections totally is as written in the novel They are both different and yet deal with the philosophical aspects of warfare basically the futility of it all The main part of the book and film deal with the attempt to take Hill 210 a well dug in emplacement by the Japanese The relationship of the characters is the most prominent aspect rather than any military excercise here leading to conflicts with the company commander Stein and the Battalion commander Colonel Tall Stein being hesitant about sacrificing his company against the assault which eventually after 4 days of combat with no water high attrition rates and so on they eventually take That part of the novel was well detailed in Malicks film However I believe the Terrence Malick film is probably the better medium to use rather than the long winded book but the book has the most merit in essentially describing the relationships between the men the dissension within their ranks the fleshed out character portrayals the caste system within the early American military things like that are and cannot be translated onto film unless you want Oliver Stone to make a 4 hour epic journey Terrence Malick covers the essential nature of the book into an over 2 hour visual portrayal incredibly well War is hell It is an anti war book the loss of life the inter linked characters and their idiosyncrasies their conflicts combat numbness you basically become immune to the shellings the wounded the deaths whilst being on the line after a certain period of time etc are uite realistically portrayed I do not know who wrote the script of the movie but the two most interesting characters are Witt and Fife in the book In the film after the capture of Hill210 then they are exaggerated completely and the ending is totally different than the novel Most people would say in most instances the book is usually better than the film version which I agree with but with the Terrence Malick film of The Thin Red Line I think in this instance because the novel is uite long winded and with artistic license then the film basically does do what the book attempts to portray maybe in a much emotional way Good book 5 stars will read again in another twenty years Deciding to Be Christian grind but not an unpleasant one because I found that I became attached towards certain characters of which there are so many that it does become confusing
