This is a story about the ravenges of war. Not so much the acts of war, but more the damage war does to the human soul. The story is about a man trapped in his own mind after fighting in WWI, and the trauma it has on his sanity. The book was ok, it was a bit on the depressing side, the entire story line was the main character's stream of conciousness which I personally found a bit tedious and wanted more background information, either as an introduction or a epilogue.
