A long lost French novel in which three soldiers return home from an unpopular unspeakable warWhen On Leave was published in Paris in 1957 as France's engagement in Algeria became ever bloody it told people things they did not want to hear It vividly described what it was like for soldiers to return home from an unpopular war in a faraway place The book received a h. I tried to enjoy this I really really didThis book describes a week in the life of 3 soldiers while on leave creative enough title eh The 3 men are drafted into an army Algerian War era 1954 1962that they have no ambition to be a part of and shares their actions and thoughts during the aforementioned timeframe The inner sleeve describes this as delving deep within the psychology of the mind of a soldier that has seen the atrocities of war the inner turmoil that changes a manwoman for the rest of their lives While that may be the case in general I didn t see much of this from Anselme The writing seems well thought out Anselme was a soldier as well but the characters the story is based upon aren t naturally developed and instead of focusing on the war aspect it seems as though it was politically basedNot a total waste of time but I can reasonably say that of all the fiction I ve read on war this might be the weakest
