Summary:

American writer Edith Wharton is known for her novels of manners set in old New York; yet much of her adult life was spent in France. She lived in Paris throughout World War I and was heavily involved in refugee work. Her 1918 novella The Marne dramatizes the events of the war as seen through the eyes of 15-year-old Troy Belknap, an American boy who longs to join up and save his beloved France. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

Genres:

  • Ron T.

    Probably an accurate account of the Americans attitude towards France prior to actually landing there. Also the snuitty upper class/wealthy ladies and gentlemen of the time. Overall a fair read.
