SUMMARY Johnny Got His Gun

READ & DOWNLOAD Ð Johnny Got His Gun The millions of dead bodies nor the thousands of ruined lives This is no ordinary novel This is a novel that never takes the easy way out. Manufacturing TasteThe story of this story is probably its most interesting part The idea for it started as a Canadian news article recounting a royal visit to a Canadian uadriplegic soldier who had been injured in World War I Twenty years later Trumbo turned this idea into a book about an American soldier that included much autobiographical material Seventy five years after that Larry Brown in his Dirty War of 2012 transformed it yet again into a hospital dialogue between two veterans of the war in Viet Nam The progression from fact to rapportage to interpreted story to re interpreted story is fascinatingEually fascinating is the political fate of both the book and its author one of the most highly paid screenwriters of the day Both were attacked by the political Left in the United States in the late 1930 s for pacifist propaganda The Far Right wrote fan mail After World War II book and author were again attacked as pacifist but then by the political Right Trumbo was summoned by the House UnAmerican Acitivities Committee of Senator Joseph McCarthy but he refused to testify He was conseuently blacklisted in the Hollywood film industry but managed to write two Academy Award winning scripts under pseudonymsBy the time of the Vietnamese war Trumbo had been rehabilitated In 1971 he wrote and directed a decidedly anti war film version of the book In 2003 Trumbo s son Christopher made a film Red White and Blacklisted about the book and its conseuences for Dalton A comprehensive biographical film was released in 2015 which uses the book as its focal point Certainly the whims and vagaries of official taste in the Stalinist Soviet Union were at least rivalled by the shifting mass opinion manufactured in the American political systemThere is no doubt about Trumbo s talent as a writer Johnny won a National Book Award as the most original work of fiction in 1939 But without its political notoriety it most probably would have remained merely a good work of its day Today it s main value is as a sort of repository of American cultural themes of the inter war period optimistic youth economic depression exploitation of immigrants West Coast cosmopolitanism and a deep nostalgia for life before 1914 Of course the book still serves as a warning to those who conceive of war as something that a country turns on and off as if it were a handy appliance or those who believe that the real enemy of every infantry soldier is something other than the rats and his officers and eventually even his doctors But so much has been written since with so much graphic detail of the personal and national conseuences of combat that Johnny seems little now than a tame historical relic which has to teach about aesthetics in a democracy than pacifism
