    smelled of decomposing flesh, while the people of the country were just a few miles away going about their lives. A lot of the book has to do with Sherston dealing with his contradicting feelings and his emotional and intellectual coming of age as he learned "that he is but one insignificant person caught up in events beyond anyone's comprehension". As the self depreciating George Sherston comes to grips with what he thinks about the war, he starts to speak up about it. The second time he is…
