Johnny Got His Gun Read Ê 105 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. Two days after Germany invaded Poland in 1939 Johnny Got His Gun one of the greatest anti war novels ever was first published And when I think beyond WW2 and beyond Vietnam right up to recent wars and those who have been blown to bits or living with without limbs from serving in places like Afghanistan and Ira along with the latest casualty of war out there somewhere right now then this novel is depressingly timely and probably always will be Because let s face it when are we ever going to throw down our guns and do away with our bombs and just all live in peace In a dream maybe but not in the real world If Johnny Got His Gun is any good at all Trumbo wrote to his publisher it is good as an argument against war The history of the book s reception is just as interesting as the book itself as Trumbo was wrongly accused of writing it at the prompting of his Stalinist comrades he was also dismayed that the novel attracted support and a great deal of fan mail from the pro Fascist American Right and as World War Two dragged on it disappeared from view only to came back in fashion during the Korean War and again at the time of Vietnam when it had a considerable impact So it can be seen as an influential cult novel too with the Beats and even Bob Dylan being influenced by Trumbo s breathless style For those who don t know and I m sure there are many that do the story is based on a newspaper report about a Canadian soldier wounded in World War One who lost his face his limbs and all his senses apart from the sense of touch but who nevertheless somehow survived well into the 1930s After an explosion in a dugout on the Western Front Joe Bonham a soldier lies in an unknown hospital The nurses hands the vibrations caused by people walking around the ward the pain of the sheets against his wounds are his only contact with the outside world Joe soon realises he is the nearest thing to a dead man on Earth a dead man with a mind that could think He is unable to separate the present from his hallucinations of the past and who can blame him We delve back to his work and his love life in Los Angeles and before his upbringing in Colorado Trumbo writes cleverly by putting the reader right inside Joe s head by using various cinematic techniues like flashbacks montage fade ins and fade outs He also Fills the novel with visceral and revolting images that represent the real horror that war inflicts In the visionary final section an uneasy combination of the idealistic and the grotesue Joe succeeds in communicating his wishes to the doctors by tapping Morse code into his pillow with his head informing them that he wishes to be displayed to the world like a circus freak as a warning against warJohnny Got His Gun illustrates Trumbo s determination as he put it to use art as a weapon for the future of mankind It s a work that was easy to read and impossible to forget Thanks so much to those who recommended it
