Arguably the best Modernist work and the most poignant book on World War I as well as one of the greatest classics of the 20th centuryÃ¢â‚¬â€A Farewell to Arms is all this and yet an incredibly approachable novel, one that transports you right into the middle of battlefield and makes you wonder about the futility and monstrosity of war and the funny madness of ordinary men. Cutting through a series of thrilling escapades, the semi-autobiographical story follows a stoic American ambulance driver Henry on the Italian front as he steers dauntless through the carnage of war, escaping death by inches and meeting bored drunk soldiers and tired villagers surviving in a world shorn to ruins by bombs and industrialization. And, yes, amidst all this wreckage breathes a love storyÃ¢â‚¬â€an intricate and powerful story of doomed romance between Henry and an English nurse.
