"Here is a frank and powerful novel of the United States during World War I ( The War to end all wars). It tells of the lives of five young Americans; Joe Williams, a Navy deserter and vagabond merchant seaman who marries "a tease". Eveline Hutchins daughter of a Chicago minister, who goes to France as a Red Cross girl to see an unconventional side of life. Richard Savage, a boy from a poor but genteel family who joins an American ambulance unit on a dizzy spin through Europe. Anne Elizabeth, whose abortive love affair with Savage ends tragically in Paris. Ben Compton, a radical who sees the War as an exploitation of the working classes.
These and other characters in 1919 make it a rich, honest and exciting reading experience , a novel which has become an American masterpiece."
