Review ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ñ Daniel Anselme

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

    Written in 1956 this novel about three French conscripts on leave from the police action in Algeria sank without much of a trace following its original publication in 1957 Its appearance in the early years of what was to be an extremely bloody and costly war for control of Algeria was an unwelcome poke in the eye of French citizens who only shortly after being routed from Vietnam probably weren't too keen to h

    One of the things I appreciated most about On Leave was that and how much it highlighted the mundane the business of everyday living as opposed to the Xs and Os of war and I felt this way for two reasons 1 most of life is mundane even

    I received this as a Goodreads Giveaway While I found this book extremely sad and depressing it gives the American reader a very uniue view of how soldiers in another country France were treated when they came home from an unpopular war These young men were as our Vietnam Vets were treated A difficult read because you want these young men to be understood They have given up their lives for their country so than if they had been

    I really enjoyed this book I agree that the characters didn't have a chance to really develop but I think that was the point Anselme was perhaps trying to make Soldiers at wartime don't have time to stop and ponder a lot of the existential dilemmas we would like for them to explore On top of that a soldier only has a few days of leave before they are thrust back into foreign territory and world foreign to the average c
