The best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Hemingway's frank portrayal of the love between Lietenant Henry and Catherine Barkey, caught in the inexorable sweep of war, glows with an intensity unrivalled in modern literature, while his description of the German attack on Caporetto- of lines of fired men marchingin the rain, hungry, weary and demoralized- has been called one of the greatest moments in literary history. A story of love and pain, of loyalty and desertion.
