An English translation of the French World War I novel “Le Feu”, written by a French soldier and dedicated to “the memory of the comrades who fell by my side at Crony and on Hill 119.” Barbusse was invalided out of the army after 17 months in 1915, and given a clerical job, during which time he penned this work. He was greatly influenced by the Russian Revolution and joined the communist party. – Summary by Lynne Thompson
