“Moreira’s narrative sparkles with informative details that help make the book a solid and lively study of this hitherto largely untreated subject.”
North Dakota Quarterly, Winter/Spring 2009
"Moreira's well written and well researched book is a major contribution to the history of the era of the Second World War, and his travel sections flow like a good novel. . . .a must for Hemingway buffs."
"Full of new information and fascinating details, Peter Moreira's book is proof that even the best-explored subjects can yield fresh interpretations and insights."
Caroline Moorehead, author of Gellhorn: A Twentieth-Century Life
"Picking a celebrated author as a spy to gain privileged access to a secretive, duplicitous foreign leader displayed imaginative thinking of the type used by the OSS and CIA in their glory years. Hemingway on the China Front is an intriguing book that will be enjoyed not only by readers interested in Hemingway and Gellhorn, but also by intelligence buffs and students of World War II history."
Richard W. Cutler, author of Counterspy: Memoirs of a Counterintelligence Officer in World War II and the Cold War
"Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, 'There is properly no history, only biography.' Peter Moreira sheds new light on America's pre-war strategy in the Pacific through the biography of the early days of Ernest Hemigway and Martha Gellhorn's doomed marriage. Of interest to readers of Hemingway and Gellhorn alike, Hemingway on the China Front provides a more detailed account of their journey through China than any previous book."
Michael Coyle, professor of English, Colgate University
"A splendid book about what turned out to be the first days of the collapse of a fine American novelist."
"A major contribution t the Hemingway archive . . . a fascinating chronicle of how war correspondents often have to make moral compromises in their journalistic integrity."
