"¿Cómo escribir sobre la Gran Guerra, la primera guerra tecnológica del siglo XX, y la puerta, también, a medio siglo de barbarie sin precedentes? Echenoz se enfrenta a un nuevo reto literario que supera con maestría. La certera pluma del escritor avanza junto a los soldados en sus largas jornadas de marcha por los países en guerra y acompaña a cuatro jóvenes de la Vendée, Anthime y sus amigos, en medio de una masa indiscernible de carne y metal, de proyectiles y muertos. Pero también nos cuenta la vida que continúa, lejos de las trincheras, a través de personajes como Blanche y su familia. Y todo ello sin renunciar a esa sutil ironía que caracteriza su escritura, condimento imprescindible de un relato apasionante"--publisher's website
