Italy, near Cassino. The terrible winter of 1944. A 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 the Second World War. Haunted by their sergeant's cold-blooded murder of a young girl, and with only an old man of uncertain loyalties as their guide, they truge on in a state of barely suppressed terror and confusion. With snipers lying in wait for them, the men are confronted by agonizing moral choices...

Taut and propulsive - Peace is a feat of economy, compression, and imagination, a tough and unmistakably contemporary meditation on the corrosiveness of violence, the human cost of war, and the redemptive power of mercy.

“Fantastic book depicting the reality of war”

Excellent! Great prose, well-drawn characters and with an ear for great dialogue, Bausch's novella easily matches Hemingway in his depiction of soldiers facing the horrors of World War II in Italy.
