The classic "All Quiet on the Western Front" gave a clear picture of the life of German Infantrymen in WWI. Similarly, Henri Barbusse's "Under Fire: The Story of a Squad" follows a group of French soldiers in the early days of WWI. The book was one of the first novels about World War I to be published. Although it is fiction, the novel was based directly on Barbusse's experiences as a French soldier on the Western Front. In contrast to many war novels which came before it, Under Fire describes war in gritty and brutal realism. It is noted for its realistic descriptions of death in war and the squalid trench conditions. Like "All Quiet on the Western Front." "Under Fire" is unforgettable.

Henri Barbusse (May 17, 1873, -- August 30, 1935) was a soldier in WWI, a French novelist and a member of the French Communist Party.
