  • WVMLStaffPicks rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

The fragile pre-World War I society which the novel's four characters inhabit is torn apart revealing deceit, hatred, infidelity and betrayal. The 'good soldier's' life appears unimpeachable. But behind the facade his 'good' life was rotting away. The novel has been called 'one of the triumphs of 20th centruy literature.'
