Description: John Dos Passos was studying architecture in Spain when America entered World War I and, driven by the idealism that infected many young Americans (including Ernest Hemingway and e.e. cummings), he joined up as a driver for the Ambulance Corps. His rapid and profound disillusionment forms the core of Three Soldiers, a fierce denouncement of the military and of the far-reaching social implications of its exploitation of young men.

The novel focuses on three main characters: Andrews, a young composer who finally revolts against the war's deadening regimentation; Chrisfield, an Indiana farm boy who chants the words "make the world safe for democracy" to himself in a futile attempt to block out the noises and terrors of battle; and Fuselli, a clerk who clings to the dream of becoming a corporal despite the mockery of his fellow soldiers. Required to renounce their individuality and conform with unquestioning obedience, each one, in a different ways, is ineradicably scarred by the dehumanizing effects of war.
