This novel won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 1955. An allegorical story of World War I, set in the trenches in France and dealing ostensibly with a mutiny in a French regiment, it was originally considered a sharp departure for Faulkner. Recently it has come to be recognized as one of his major works and an essential part of the Faulkner oeuvre.

For range of effect, philosophical weight, originality of style, variety of characterization, humor, and tragic intensity, Faulkner's works] are without equal in our time and country.
Robert Penn Warren

No man ever put more of his heart and soul into the written word than did William Faulkner.
Eudora Welty.
