In this book Blasco Ibañez does an extraordinary job in bringing together characters from different nationalities to present different views of this historical episode.
This book is not about the Great War, it is about how people experienced the Great War from different perspectives.
The Argentinean episodes are also memorable. They recreate vividly how many inmigrants made their fortunes in Argentina and returned to their countries of origin, typically France and Spain. In Spain they were called Indianos.
I only missed a British character and a more wider analysis of the German perspective. What Blasco Ibañez presents as the German view is what the nobility and leaders of that nation carried their nation to become.
