I m giving this one a 4 because it was well written even if it was a very slow book and therefore hard to enjoy I m used to reading 3 or 4 books a week so taking two weeks to read one is rough for me A bit verbose than I tend to enjoy but a good WWI story The author died before the start of WWII but from his writing you can tell that he wasn t as optimistic about that being the war to truly end all wars an insightful comment for the time One passage that stuck with me was one character s realization towards the middle of the book that people tend to sometimes falsely believe that war in the past was barbaric than it is today We somehow overlook our own barbarity not realizing that we haven t evolved very far when it comes to our thirst for war and destruction

Behind every book you read there is the tale of how you came to read it In 1962 when I was a ten year old schoolboy my father took my elder brother and I to see a film at our local cinema called The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse I was far too young to appreciate such a film at the time and I had no idea what the word Apocalypse meant I remember only two scenes from the film The first was of a family sat round a table discussing something very seriously all looking very troubled the other was of the four horsemen riding out of a background of newspaper headlines concerned with war and invasion and battle scenes Looking back I remember being disturbed moved by the film It was very grand dramatic After the film ended I remember standing in the cinema foyer looking up at the poster for the film that was to be shown the following week which was called The Lonely Are The Brave A title that puzzled me and made me feel sad You didn t see much of them did you the four horsemen I said to my father in a disappointed tone before we left the cinema to catch the bus home No but I knew what it was about he said Maybe he took my elder brother and I to see the film because it was about the First World War and my grandfather fought in the Battle of the Somme In the 1990 s during the Christmas holiday period a silent film of the same name made in 1921 starring Rudolph Valentino was shown on Channel Four television It was interesting watching a film so old It was worth the watch with some very dramatic scenes The scene that still haunts me came near the end An old man with a black straggly beard staggers around a field of lines of white crosses looking for the grave of his son He outspreads his arms in despair Then on the screen comes the caption card Printed on it are the words I knew them all At the same time I found out that both films were based on a novel of the same name written by someone called Vicente Blasco Ibanez One day I will read it I promised myself Now here in 2013 I have done I found it a very moving disturbing novel written in clear bold prose that reveals the root of things right to the bare bones It seems at first as if it will be no than the history of a wealthy landowner called Don Marcelo Desnoyers and his family alone But when the family move from their ranch in Argentina to Paris it deepens and widens out to become one that tells of how the events of the beginning of the First World War tears its members apart as it does all of Europe One of the passages that will always haunt me from the novel is the one which describes the conversation between Julio the son of Don Marcelo Desnoyers his friend Argensola and an old bearded Russian man named Tchernoff as they walk towards the Arc De Triomphe in Paris In an inspired state Tchernoff speaks of war in Europe summoning in his ramblings the four horsemen from Chapter Six of the Book of Revelation The novel is good at capturing how first the rumour and talk of war leads to frenzy when the news comes in that Germany has invaded Belgium From then on Paris is transformed relationships and perceptions changed The middle part of the book is particularly moving and dramatic concentrating on Don Marcelo who remains in Paris after sending his wife Dona Luisa and his daughter Chichi to live in a seaside town in Spain to escape the possible German invasion From Paris he retreats to the castle he bought outside its walls in the countryside First he lives there like a hermit then as a prisoner after it is taken over by the German army The battle he witnesses between the German army and the French army is well told Vicente Blasco Ibanez makes you feel the shudder of the cannons as they fire and makes you see and smell each explosion His descriptions of battle reminded me of the battle scenes in War and Peace the poetry of Wilfred Owen and much further back to the battle scenes described by Homer in The Iliad I was moved by the sad tale of the romance between Julio and Marguerite which runs throughout the novel When Julio first moves to Paris he is content to live only for pleasure living the life of a painter in his studio with his fellow artist Argensola becoming popular on the dance floors while persisting with his romance with Marguerite a married woman But when war comes he joins the French army and eventually becomes an officer after performing some heroic deeds Strangely it is the war which reconciles Don Marcelo with his son Julio Before it begins father and son had become estranged because Don Marcelo had not approved of Julio s pleasure seeking lifestyle or his love affair with a married woman I am glad I have finally read this novel I am not interested in war adventure stories or thrillers This book is neither an adventure or a thriller It is a tale told of how war affects human beings of all kinds written in a very moving way on a grand scale Perhaps one day someone will make a third film based on the same novel It has well drawn interesting characters clear bold descriptions of battles and at its centre it has the complicated ultimately sad romance between Julio and Marguerite and the grand summoning of the four horsemen from the pages of the Book of Revelation bringing conuest war judgement and death upon the battlefield of Earth
