5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the canonical Great War memoirs 22 avril 2014
Par Timothy Williams - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Barbusse's Under Fire can be compared to Remarque's All Quiet On the Western Front, although published earlier and during the war. The narrator relates the travails of the men in his unit as they endure tedium behind the front, physical deprivation, alienation from command, estrangement from civilians, resentment of shirkers, and other universal tropes of the war. Colorful slang and euphemism from the period lend the narrative a distinctive French character, as do the proletarian backgrounds and diverse personalities of the conscript poilus. Barbusse is a spellbinding writer even in translation and the book is filled with memorable quotations, images, and drama.

Great war memoirs from different belligerent countries illustrate the ways in which the war destroyed and re-formed civilization. Under Fire eloquently captures many of the French experiences and lessons of the war. Barbusse drew socialist conclusions and his last chapter unwittingly foreshadows totalitarianism. Barbusse himself ended up as an apologist for Stalin, and Under Fire provides unintended insight into one way that revulsion from the first industrial war contributed to the greater horrors of the second.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Grim but Fascinating 12 mars 2014
Par Ray Doyle - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is one of the classic antiwar novels ever written. It follows a squad of French soldiers during the first two years of World War One. It is brutal and at times horrific in its descriptions of life, and very often death, in the front line trenches. It also focuses on the psychological aspects of the horror and sufferings of the men in combat. Those interested in WWI will find this work of great value. The only other work I have found to rival it in describing the Great War is All Quiet on the Western Front by Eric Maria Remarque.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Astonishing in Its Time 13 octobre 2013
Par Tom Diaz - Publié sur

According to some observers, it's amazing that this book was allowed to be published at the time it was, during the First World War. Whole official propagandists were busy generating fantastically optimistic and gilded fiction about life in the trenches, Barbusse told it as it was. It may seem remote today, but this first "industrial war" marked a dramatic change in warfare and he was there.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Under Fire: Dante wrote about hell but Frenchman Henri Barbusse lived through it during World War I trench warfare 26 octobre 2009
Par C. M Mills - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Henri Barbusse (1873-1935) was a middle-aged journalist when the guns of August were unleased on Western Civilization in 1914. Barbusse enlisted in the French Army serving eighteen months in the trenches. This novel was published in 1915 to huge sales and critical acclaim. Many officers requested copies of the book to distribute to their troops. It is a brutal, graphic and heartbreaking account of life and sudden death on the battlefield.
One of the literary pluses of the novel is the descriptive and poetic power of Barbusse's prose. We learn of the lives of his fellow soldiers, their longings and their desire to live through the bombardments which fall on their heads. Barbusse tells us of their love affairs, fears and dreams. He describes in detail the grisly death of many of his fellow soldiers. We lean over their shoulder as they read letters from home; meet cowards and civilans who have no concept of the horrors of modern technological warfaree. This is a description of war totally devoid of all romanticism. It is war as it is actually experienced. Barbusse's descriptions of the dead will never be forgotten by the reader.
The last pages of the novel are the most powerful. Barbusse makes a plea for pacifism as he excoriates the governmental and military donkeys who lead men into senseless suicidal charges across the no man's land of trenches. Barbusse became a well known anti-war advocate who became a Communist party member. Barbusse died in Moscow.
Under Fire is in that select company of great World War I novels and autobiographies which include Robert Graves' "Good-bye to All That"; Ernst Junger's "Storm of Steel"; John Dos Passos "Three Comrades" Vera Brittain's "Testament of Youth" and Erich M. Remarque's "All Quiet on the Western Front." It is an essential soldier level view of the mechanized murder which was World War I and remains all wars. The book proves General William Tecumseh's Sherman's remark that "War is Hell."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I've never read a better account of a soldier's life and misery 30 juillet 2014
Par robert garcia - Publié sur

Captures the souls of soldiers living in horrific WW1 trenches, going over the top, and getting trapped in no man's land. Plodding at times. I've never read a better account of a soldier's life and misery.
