  1. I remember 'Generals Die in Bed' as a great book. I need to reread it, having just read Robert Graves' memoirs, and get a bit more of that miserable trench action. Maybe reread Findley's 'The Wars' too, just to extinguish any last spark of will to live.

  2. It is a great book, as is Findley's The Wars. The Great War fairly runs through our literature; not even L.M. Montgomery is untouched. If you are looking for more, I suggest Joseph Boyden's acclaimed debut novel Three Day Road (2005), inspired by Ojibwa sniper Francis Pegahmagabow. It may just keep that spark alive.
