First published in 1929, this draws on Hemingway's experiences of
World War I, when he was badly wounded while serving with the
Italians. This is a portrait of men at war which explores their deeper
responses to the cruelty and heroism of battle.
Ernest Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899, the second of six
