Humdrumming Ltd are proud to be republishing British military historian, Charles Whiting's, classic book, Hemingway Goes To War, which is perhaps the most detailed account of the time Hemingway spent as a war correspondent in the European Theatre of Operations in 1944; a fraught and bloody period of time that culminated in Hemingway effectively being court-martialled by the US Army for carrying and using arms in contravention of the rules governing war correspondents.

And Charles Whiting is no arnchair historian, but a man who fought with the British and American armies from 1944 onwards.

Back in the winter Charles went to Bavaria to research for his new book, Hitler's Mountain People, and while he was walking in the mountains slipped and broke his collarbone. This, naturally, didn't stop him working, and between operations ( he was in hospital for several weeks) he was able to revise and re-edit the Hemingway book, and start work on a brand new non-fiction book for Humdrumming about the closing months of WWII. 

This new edition of Hemingway Goes To War,ISBN 1905532202  is now available to pre-order by going to or via,, and Barnes & Noble.

I finally read "HEMINGWAY GOES TO WAR' by Charles Whiting...I don't see what all of the fuss was about on the topic before... I say the book is very well written and interesting, also found nothing new about Hemingway; At least not much that I haven't read many times before.  Since he listed all of his sources, no wonder I did not notice much new about his character or habits.  It painted a better picture of Mary Hemingway though, but she never did interest me much.

I intend to read more of Charles Whiting's books, I love history and especially the WWII period. Germany was an interesting country just before and after Hitler was elected.  (Interesting election, wasn't it?

Best, docnme
