By Ernest Hemingway
The easiest American novel to emerge from global struggle I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable tale of an American ambulance motive force at the Italian entrance and his ardour for a gorgeous English nurse. Hemingway's frank portrayal of the affection among Lieutenant Henry and Catherine Barkley, stuck within the inexorable sweep of conflict, glows with an depth unmatched in glossy literature, whereas his description of the German assault on Caporetto -- of strains of fired males marching within the rain, hungry, weary, and demoralized -- is among the maximum moments in literary background. a narrative of affection and ache, of loyalty and desertion, A Farewell to Arms, written whilst he used to be 30 years previous, represents a brand new romanticism for Hemingway.
