In 1915, Jean Dartemont heads off to the Great War, an eagerconscript. The only thing he fears is missing the action. Soon, however, thevaunted “war to end all wars” seems like a war that will never end: whethermired in the trenches or going over the top, Jean finds himself caught in themidst of an unimaginable, unceasing slaughter. After he is wounded, he returnsfrom the front to discover a world where no one knows or wants to know any ofthis. Both the public and the authorities go on talking about heroes—andsending more men to their graves. But Jean refuses to keep silent. He willspeak the forbidden word. He will tell them about fear.

John Berger has called Fear“a book of the utmost urgency and relevance.” A literary masterpiece, it isalso an essential and unforgettable reckoning with the terrible war that gavebirth to a century of war.
