"Disaster as well as victory is written for every nation on the record of the World War, but high on the rolls of glory two names are inscribed -- the Marne and the Piave."--Title screens. In this first cinematic adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's famous 1930 novel about love in the midst of World War I, the star-crossed lovers are a beautiful English nurse named Catherine Barkley and American Frederick Henry, an ambulance driver in the Italian Army. Their relationship gets off to a rocky start, but eventually they become inseparable, pledging their love for one another and marrying secretly. Frederick's jealous friend Major Rinaldi schemes to break them apart, using his influence to have Catherine sent away and intercepting her letters to Frederick.

Three comrades by Frank Borzage( Visual )

12 editions published between 1938 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A poignant love story centered around the lives of three young, disillusioned returned soldiers caught up in the turmoil of post World War I Germany. Their close friendship is strengthened by their shared love for the same woman who is dying of tuberculosis. Careful self-censorship by M-G-M lessened the films impact as an indictment of Nazi Germany, yet despite the Hollywood makeover of Remarque's novel (he also wrote 'All Quiet on the Western Front') the film still conveys the haunting sense of hopelessness and waste felt by a generation of youth indelibly marked by the war and its consequences
