Peace by Richard Bausch Italy, near Cassino. The terrible winter of 1944. Dismal icy rain falls, unabated, for days.

Three American soldiers set out on the gruelling ascent of a perilous Italian mountainside in the murky closing days of World War II. Haunted by the cold-blooded murder of a young girl by their sergeant, and with only a seventy-year-old Italian man of dubious loyalties as their guide, they trudge on in an atmosphere of barely suppressed terror and confusion. With snipers lying in wait for them, and their survival imperative, the men are confronted with agonizing moral choices.

Taut and propulsive with its spare language, punishing landscape, and the keenly drawn portraits of three young soldiers at is core Peace is a feat of economy, compression and imagination, a brutal and unmistakably contemporary meditation on the corrosiveness of violence, the human cost of war, and the redemptive power of mercy.
