A gritty World War I novel, a war started by the last generation of those who believed in the divine right of Kings. It was made into a 1957 film by Stanley Kubrick (arguably his greatest) that was banned in France because of its authentic depiction of a coverup by French commanding officers deflecting their incompetent stupidity.
