Under Fire

Under Fire: The Story of a Squad was one of the first novels about World War I to be published. Although it is fiction, the novel was based on Barbusse&39;s experiences as a French soldier on the Western Front. The novel takes the form of journal-like anecdotes which the unnamed narrator claims to be writing to record his time in the war. It follows a squad of French volunteer soldiers on the Western front in France after the German invasion. The book opens and ends with broad visions shared by multiple characters but beyond these the action of the novel takes place in occupied France. The anecdotes are episodic, each with a chapter title. The best-known chapter,&34;The Fire&34;, describes a trench assault from the Allied (French) trench across No-Man&39;s Land into the German trench. In contrast to many war novels which came before it, Under Fire describes war in gritty and brutal realism. It is noted for its realistic descriptions of death in war and the squalid trench conditions.

Henri Barbusse

Amor
Comprender es una palabra viva y la carne de esa palabra es amor.
Hablar
Si me callo, muero; pero, habiendo hablado, si muero, no callo.
