Johnny Got His Gun

Johnny Got His Gun - Dalton Trumbo Somehow, I think that this would be an even more powerful book without the last speech from Joe. The message is unmistakable anyway, and leaving people to think about it on their own would have made them turn it over longer, and take it more and more to heart. Probably ending a book without a clear resolution was less acceptable those days.
