By MacKinlay Kantor

THE most sensible YEARS OF OUR LIVES

It is seldom in time of conflict that an au­thor, regardless of how emotionally conscious of what all of it capability, can write a booklet which expresses the sensation that moti­vates struggling with males. Why did it occur this fashion, why is it finishing this manner— what are we now that it's performed with, now that we're domestic? certainly, are we domestic, or are we in a boarding-house of bewilderment and wretchedly defeated reasons and understandings?

MacKinlay Kantor is one among Amer­ica's best-known novelists. it would be stated that if any writer may well write that booklet Kantor stands out as the one for the task, however it takes greater than mere specialist writing ability to accomplish this kind of significant accomplishment. It takes understanding born of motion and chance and keenly felt wisdom. Such knowl­edge MacKinlay Kantor has stumbled on, and in his novel of conflict and its males, Glory for Me, he has entirely expressed it.

Well above the draft age, and physi­cally unacceptable to the military, Kantor intensely felt the necessity to sign up for his more youthful fellows in a roundabout way; indirectly he needed to be part of the risk, the horror, the dignity of this warfare. He discovered his chance as a warfare correspondent. As such, established in Eng­land, he flew in wrestle with the U. S. Air Forces and the R.A.F. over enemy territory into flak and hearth. As such he realized to understand the battling males whose consistent significant other, buddy and fellow-in-war he used to be for lots of months. For the identical of a go away Kantor got here again to the us, and what crammed his brain and his middle and his strategies needed to locate expression in a publication, that's Glory for Me.

Glory for Me is an easy novel—about 3 provider males, honorably dis­charged for clinical motives, who re­turn domestic to an identical city the place in peacetime that they had now not recognized one an­other. Now they understand each other, and during them we all know them and their city and our state and warfare and peace and man.

Glory for Me is a countrywide epic, informed in language of the typical guy, in language of the poet: instructed as merely an American may possibly inform it.
