"[Death of a Hero] takes its place among the half dozen superb stories of the war that will not let men forget." -- The Nation "Death of a Hero is a book impossible to ignore." -- Arnold Bennett "This novel is an undervalued war novel treasure by a pioneering 20th-century literary figure. The quality of writing about the war should rank this novel among the classics about World War I warfare and even for all time." -- James H. Meredith
