(Few if any mainstream press reviews can be found online for older works.)
A beautiful and moving tale of the Italian front.... [Athough] Ernest did not invent the narrative method, which is chiefly to be characterized by the staccato nature of sentences (an effort at reproducing universal conversational habit), and its rigid exclusion of all but the most necessary description....[he] has, in his several books, made it so strikingly his own that it may bear his name.... The story of the love between the English nurse and the American ambulance officer, as hapless as that of Romer and Juliet, is a high achievement in what might be termed the new romanticism.
