I've been reading as many of Dickens' lesser known books as I can find. This one is typical of the Dickens theme of self-sacrifice and happy endings in a fairly short story, with all ends tied up. The title and the setting (a former battlefield) are not really relevant to the theme, other than Marion's inner conflict

For Dickens, it's a three rating. But the characters, coming alive on the pages, and the scenery were so Dicken s, it merits a four star. Just disappointed in the telling of the tale. I Don't know when this was written (although I will find out), but my guess is that this is one of his earlier works. But, he sure knew how to spin a yarn.

This is a surprising book. I wish not to say very much about it--interfere with another reader's appreciation of it--except that it seemed different from the other of Dickens' works I have read (though it still shows his craftsmanship and mastery thereof); and that it is a good read.

Cannot ever tire of Mr. Dickens. Vintage Dickens...a small jewel...wish it were longer...but a jewel is still a jewel no matter the size.

The Battle of Life is a sweet love story. It is quite short, making for a nice casual read over a couple of days. I enjoyed it.
