"Bert Tyler fought in the First World War, his son Will in the Second and his grandson Wat in the Vietnam War. Their lives reflect the changing attitudes, accelerated by war, of their generations - towards authority, the family, love, sex and individual freedom.
Above all this novel is an indictment of war, haphazardly selecting its victims and stripping individual lives of their meaning.
Sons tells a dramatic story about loving, hating, struggling and dying; in short, about the endlessly fascinating adventure of life. It is the most ambitious and exciting novel Evan Hunter has ever written."
