This book follows a squad of French volunteer soldiers on the front in France after the German invasion. The book opens and ends with broad visions shared by multiple characters. The anecdotes are episodic in nature, each with an individual chapter title. In contrast to many war novels which came before it, Under Fire describes war in gritty and brutal realism. A powerful and earnest portrayal of life at the frontline during World War I. Berbusse's depiction of the horrors and tragedies of war is staggeringly realistic. He draws the reader's attention to the appalling conditions in which soldiers lived and fought through various anecdotes. Highly perceptive and thought-provoking!
