Amazon.com description: Product Description: En Anopopei, un pequeno islote del Pacifico en forma de ocarina, un universo cerrado donde rigen leyes y sentimientos muy diferentes de los de la vida de los civiles, una patrulla de jovenes soldados, microcosmos de la sociedad americana estan Hearn, un joven intelectual que lee a Rilke; el realista e implacable sargento Croft; Ridges, un campesino sureno; Red Valsen, minero de Montana y anarcosindicalista; Gallagher, un irlandes catolico de los barrios bajos de Boston y, planeando sobre todos ellos, la poderosa sombra del general Cummings, nacido en la America mas profunda e integrista, secretamente fascinado por el nuevo orden del fascismo..., es enviada en una mision de reconocimiento, una larga marcha por un terreno desconocido y lleno de minas que acabara en una pesadilla de abyeccion y heroismo, posiblemente tan gratuita como la guerra misma. Empujados al ultimo limite, permanentemente desnudos ante la muerte, los heroes de Mailer cuestionan las verdades del pasado y la vigencia de los ideales americanos, viven obsesionados por el sexo y padecen y hacen padecer a otros las corrupciones y arbitrariedades del poder. / Mailer had been among those who occupied Japan after its defeat, and this novel, which critics defined as the greatest war novel written in this century immediately placed the writer among the greats of American literature. Set in Anopopei, a small island of the Pacific, young soldiers live in a microcosm of American society. Pushed to the limit, permanently exposed to death, Mailers heroes question the truths of the past. They are obsessed with sex and they suffer, as well as making others suffer from their corruption and arbitrary acts of power.
