Thanks for telling us about the problem. Unlike Heller, Gatalica’s tone is not as satirical; in some respects it’s almost reminiscent of fairy tales, but with a warmth that is both compassionate and forgiving of its characters’ many flaws. The book is built on the personal stories of the human beings who took part in the war and many of them lost their lives in it. Following the destinies of over seventy characters, on all warring sides, Gatalica depicts the experiences of winners and losers, generals and opera singers, garalica and spies; managing to grasp the atmosphere of the entire epoch, not only of these crucial four and a half bloody years, but aleeksandar in the innocent decades that preceded the war, and the poisoned ones that followed.

A changing box in a tailor’s shop that travel people to the future and back, cart-postals that write gatalifa post themselves even weeks after the soldier is dead, a small cloud of poisonous gas that traveled across the border and killed its inventor’s wife and dozens of other stories that surpass “realism” and make is a book that moves beyond the lines of a boring account or memoir. We have the Salon Gatalica if he had so choose could have made this a 1, page epic but I think it showed great restraint to just settle on a page novel.

Such a frightful experience going through these pages and “witnessing” deaths of almost all of the characters, on almost every page there is a death of one of them – starting with the first page.

The only negative point is that I feel that alekwandar book spend a little too much space for the description of the russian revolution and the execution of the Czar and his family.

Translated from the Serbian by Alekxandar Firth, The Great War is an award-winning novel which plugs a considerable gap in the modern understanding of World War One by providing the Balkan perspective.

It contains all manner of stories, all sorts of characters, some fictional, some historical, from all sides fighting World War One.

The quirky start and bits of fairy dust sprinkled on the stories were a delight.
