    He felt a quiet manhood, nonassertive but of sturdy and strong blood He knew that he would no quail before his guides wherever they should point He had been to touch the great death, and found that, after all, it was but the great death He was a man Stephen Crane, The Red Badge of CourageHere everything is planned for killing The ground is ready to receive us, the bullets are ready to hit us, the spots where the shells will explode are fixed in time and space, just like the paths of our destiny which will inevitably lead us to them And yet we want to stay alive and we use all our mental strength to silence the voice of reason We are well aware that death does not immortalize a human being in the memories of the living, it simply cancels him out Gabriel Chevallier, FearThis is a ferocious cry of pain and rage Gabriel Chevallier s Fear is a semi autobiographical novel that follows first person narrator and Chevallier stand in Jean Dartemont through the First World War First published in 1930, it was pulled out of circulation during the Second World War, and only made its way to an English translation in the last few years I d never heard of it until a Goodreads friend brought it to my attention I m glad he did This is a book...

    Fear A Novel of World War I, The one novel you must read about the Great War Gabriel Chevalier in service during World War IMuch to come Not to heighten suspense, this novel is superb Chevallier holds nothing back in his depiction of war It is a scathing portrait of indifferent leaders mindful of their reputation but not the fate of their men Discipline is brutal Armed Gendarmes on horseback are stationed behind the lines to send men moving to the rear back to the front Gendarmes who do not fight have the authority to execute soldiers who do not obey Medals are distributed, but to the commanders safely ensconced in fortified dugouts far in the rear of combat Those at the front whose actions lead to success are not recognized Newspapers cover up failures at the front Civilians accustomed to seeing soldiers home on leave are unaware of the massive deaths at the front unless they have received personal notification of their ...

    If you are interested in World War I on this the centenary of that terrible event and, especially, if you are interested in life and action on the front during that war, then I suggest you get a copy of this book While this is a novel, it reads like fact and was written by a Frenchman who lived through these battles on the front Perhaps fictionalized memoir is an apt description for this book We begin with Jean Dartemont s rather lackadaisical approach to joining the French war effort and then his experiences as a recruit and at the front Several times, as Jean s experiences progressed and he lived through some of the most harrowing moments of the war, I took a temporary break from reading after a particularly heartbreaking episode but then jumped back in This is so well written, so full of details of daily life, the life of everyday French soldiers living in and digging trenches waiting, constantly waiting, so often in the rain.The war begins Priority The telegraph is working flat out, for for reasons of state Post offices send out telegrams in cipher, marked Urgent The proclamation is posted up on every town hall in the country The shouting starts It s official Crowds of people swarm on to the streets, pushing and shoving, running, running in all direction Cafes empty Shops empty Cinemas, museums, banks, churches, bachelor flats and police stations empty The whole of France now stands gazing at the poster and reads Liberty, Equality, Fraternit...

    I wanted to read about World War I without going into the trenches, but, necessarily, into the trenches we must go Absurdity is there, along with the putrefaction It doesn t take long for our semi autobiographical, first person narrator to understand that he is mere fodder, that there is no point Yet, he is there for the duration, collecting stories and sharing the Fear He is even capable of moments of courage.My views of War and of military ritual were formed long ago What was new for me, here, was the graphic realization that you can not know unless you are there, feet in frozen water, ready to pointlessly climb the parapet Convalescing from shrapnel wounds, Dartemont has this exchange with a friend of the family to whom he has spoken of Fear Still, you don t believe what you said, do you I really do believe it, as do many others But there is still such a thing as duty, they must have taught you that I ve been taught a great many things like you and I m aware that one has to choose between them War is nothing but a monstrous absurdi...

    Very good war memoir well, I consider it lightly veiled memoir I ve been trying to work my way through various WWI memoirs, there is a long list I d like to get to, and I d like to explore memoirs from various theaters and various cultures nationalities if you have any suggestions please let me know It s interesting getting the worm s eye view almost literally when it comes to the nature of trench warfare of this episode of history.This book contrasts nicely with Ernst Junger s Storm of Steel I think both are excellent, Junger s book is a must read imo and of exceptional quality, but ultimately I align much with Gabriel Chevallier his disgust at the elites, their wanton carelessness in sending hundreds of thousands of men to be slaughtered in offensives they knew to be doomed from the start, the class issues and elitism involved with this war which he hits upon throughout the book , the pernicious nationalism yoked onto the citizenry by the state also buttressed by bottom up mob menta...

    se per avere un eroe bisogna massacrare diecimila uomini, preferisco fare a meno degli eroi Sappiate infatti che la missione a cui ci destinate, forse, voi non sareste in grado di compierla Nessuno pu giurare sulla propria saldezza di fronte alla morte finch non se la trova davanti .Il ventenne Dartemont, alter ego di Chevallier inizia ponendosi un interrogativo cos la guerra tutti ne parlano, tutti ci vanno, ma cos , in realt , la guerra Penso alle parole di Bourne La guerra la salute dello stato Si crede di morire per la Patria e si muore invece per il Potere.Stupidit , povert e ignoranza generano uomini che credono e obbediscono all ordine di capi e padroni E ci rende possibile gli eserciti e le guerre.Si traveste da ideale un atto criminale e si condannano a morte esseri umani colpevoli della propria docilit.Chi d ordine al massacro sorride tracotante pensando alla vittoria Milioni e milioni di vittime servono a soddisfare la vanit imbecille che manda il mondo in rovina.Quelli che vanno alla guerra non sono pupazzi, sono uomini fatti di carne e di paura.Paura, ecco la parola maledetta Paura, parola impronunciabile Perch se solo affiora alle labbra del soldato lo trasforma in ci che realmente un povero cristo mandato al macello.Ci va coraggio, e tanto, per raccontare la paura del soldato al fronte che rischia ...

    Wow This one is an unrecognized classic of the military novel genre that should be better known Jean Dartemont, the eager young Frenchman, joins the French army in 1915 against the Germans He is quickly disillusioned as to blind patriotism and to army life there is no glory to be found here except that for the high officers, who grab it at the expense of the ranks All to be found here in the trenches is only mind numbing monotony and overwhelmingly, the desire to stay alive Mostly the men are in a state of stasis waiting for the other side to start something Fear, Anxiety, and Terror are Dartemont s constant companions, just as they accompany every other poilu common soldier We are taken through his whole military career from enlistment to the Armistice It details Dartemont s coming upon dead Germans for the first time and his shock at how the bodies have been blown apart In his first battle, in which he kills no one he is wounded enough to send to the hospital Nurses there care for gruesome, grisly wounds and are disappointed there are no tales of glorious exploits None of the patients have any to tell them On convalescent leave, his father can t or...

    Written by a French veteran of the First World War, FEAR is one of the great anti war novels Not as melodramatic as JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN nor even ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT and I use melodramatic only in a comparative sense , nor as absurdly comic as CATCH 22, Gabriel Chevallier s novel is simply at least on the surface a seemingly objective description of the life of a French poilu, or foot soldier, in the trenches of northern France from 1914 to 1918 Chevallier recoils not one bit from the horrors so numbingly omnipresent on the battlefields of that wretched war, but he writes with an apparent detachment that obliterates the sense of this as a polemic Yet the book is even effective for Chevallier s seeming disdain for pushing an agenda, and beneath the surface lies a hidden lake of bile, sarcasm, and outrage FEAR is an obscure book compared to the classic anti war novels mentioned above, and has only recentl...

    When I chose this book to read next, I noted the irony of my having commented about the explicit violence in Se or Vivo and the Coca Lord But in that it was the sadism involved and it s being personal rather than general There are a lot of adjectives to describe The Great War, but I wouldn t use sadistic, other than that I m sure there were sadists among the combatants, probably on both sides The works I ve been reading don t include that aspect, thankfully.I also read recently Under Fire, which covers a lot of the same ground thematically, if not literally, as this one This is much better written or I read a much better translation This one covers the war from declaration to armistice, where the Barbusse ends in 1916 Both claim to be novels, but, as both are written in the first person and by combatants, it isn t difficult to think these are memoir than fiction.Chevallier was wounded by shrapnel fairly early, spent time in hospital, then returned to his unit He was able to give a broader picture of the war He witnessed death and killing a...

    I ve read three books on WWI this week Without doubt this one was the most graphic and captured the brutality, pointlessness and evil of war in the trenches of WWI.A novel based on the author own experience which is also interesting in that the man survived five...
