I really wanted to love this book. It's one of the sharpest indictments of war ever written in fictional form, a groundbreaking work by a sincere, progressive author For someone who wrote one of the greatest novels to come out of the First World War and is often credited as the writer who turned French literature around in the twentieth century, Henri Barbusse is surprisingly little known in much of the world today. Could this be because of his communist politics or because he lived out his late years in the Soviet Union?

Barbusse was born outside Paris and joined the artistic circles of that city, producing mainly poetry and journalism at first. His novel L'enfer , translated as Inferno or Hell however sparked a scandal as an account of voyeurism when it was released in English. In the intensely realistic story, a young man in a Paris boardinghouse spies on his neighbours through a hole in his bedroom wall, witnessing marriage, adultery, birth, death, lesbianism and all other human behaviours.

It became one of France's most widely novels and is credited as introducing a new level of realism in literature, to be developed up by such writers as James Joyce.

Le feu , translated as Under Fire , the Story of a Squad was his depiction of the horrendous carnage and a moving portrait of the men who suffered it together. One of the most realistic and, at the same time, poetic accounts of war ever written, it won the Prix Goncourt, France's highest literary honour. The war turned Barbusse first into a pacifist and then into a communist, as he joined the newly formed French Communist Party in He also wrote several non-fiction books about Russia.

Henri Barbusse

The son of a French father and an English mother, Barbusse was born in France in This convincing and dramatic account came as a shocking revelation to many. Barbusse then turned to Russia for further inspiration, and went there in January where he married, later returning to France. The main motive was his belief in the Bolshevik cause, although Esperanto was also of real interest. His belief in communism appears to have been total and uncritical. He seems to have had no problem dedicating a book to Trotsky, then denouncing him as a traitor when he fell from grace. Communism affected all his subsequent work.
