The Lonely Warrior
An idealistic American enlists and fights in The Great War. This novel focuses on his life after returning to the US “hard-boiled” and cynical, a disillusioned and embittered young man who has lost all interest in his family, his job, and his fiancé. Outraged by the fact of war, he takes refuge in apathy. It is the story of many others like himself who become lonely and discouraged and of their struggles to readjust to the changing world around them.
