    I really enjoyed this book I agree that the characters didn't have a chance to really develop but I think that was the point Anselme was perhaps trying to make Soldiers at wartime don't have time to stop and ponder a lot of the existential dilemmas we would like for them to explore On top of that a soldier only has a few days of leave before they are thrust back into foreign territory and world foreign to the average citizen So for me thi
