(Under Fire: The Story of a Squad) – In French language.
One of the first novels about WWI, written by a French novelist and a member of the French Communist Party, Henri Barbusse, also known for his lifelong friendship with Albert Einstein. The novel takes the form of journal-like anecdotes which the unnamed narrator claims to be writing to record his time in the war. It follows a squad of French volunteer soldiers on the Western front in France after the German invasion. The book opens and ends with broad visions shared by multiple characters but beyond these the action of the novel takes place in occupied France.
