Walt stood up, slapped his thighs, and began to crow like a cock. 'Bring on the whole German army!' he shouted. 'Bring them on all together, or one at a time. I can whip them all!' The greatest First World War novel to come out of America, Company K is the unforgettable account of one US Marine company, from initial training, through to the trenches in France and post-war rehabilitation. Written in 1933 by a decorated Marine hero, this is an unflinching, visceral depiction of the brutal reality of war.
