I have read every book Richard Bausch has written with immense pleasure, and this collection of stories is no exception. Richard Bausch turns you into a voyeur as you peep in the most delicate folds of people's lives.

I have read every book Richard Bausch has written with immense pleasure, and this collection of stories is no exception. My eyes rarely strayed from the page as everyday characters were revealed with slow complexity, and familiar environments were painted with a deft and colorful brush. I didn't want to rest at the end of each story, I wanted to go straight on to the next. He opens the windows and slips the curtains at just the most telling moments. The stories in the book vary, but each provides a moment to gasp, because real people can be so surprising.

Italy, near Cassino, in the terrible winter of 1944. An icy rain, continuing unabated for days. Guided by a seventy-year-old Italian man in rope-soled shoes, three American soldiers are sent on a reconnaissance mission up the side of a steep hill that they discover, before very long, to be a mountain. As they climb, the old man's indeterminate loyalties only add to the terror and confusion that engulf them. Peace is a feat of storytelling from one of America's most acclaimed novelists: a powerful look at the corrosiveness of violence, the human cost of war, and the redemptive power of mercy.

I've read this book twice & chose it for our group's December book. First, it's highly readable & relatively short, which fits in well with busy December doings. The writing is gritty as it follows Allied soldiers in WWII in the mountains of Italy who do not know who are their friends & who are their enemies. Snipers and informants abound, yet the writing is sensitive and the reader finds she really connects with the soldiers. Peace won the 2009 Dayton Literary Peace Prize and the W.Y. Boyd Literary Award for Excellence in Military Fiction of American Library Association. We had a lively discussion about its contents, characters and the repercussions of war. I recommend it highly.

Breathtaking. I couldn't put this book down and still recall several scenes with vivid detail. A page turner filled with both poetry and pain, specific emotion that slivers into the heart and stays put. Absolutely gorgeous.
Valawye
This book, set in WWII, covers timeless themes such as friendship, prejudice, nationalism, love, loss and futility. It's short but very well written and flows well. It's worth reading.

Richard Bausch has written a near perfect novel about war, in this case World War II, that period of world history that continues to engage writers and readers alike. Three American soldiers and their guide, an old Italian man, are sent on a reconnaissance mission in Italy in 1944. Most of the story takes place on one awful winter night and unfolds through the eyes of Marson. He is twenty-seven, from Washington D.C, in charge of the other two soldiers, and has a wife back home and a child whom he has never seen, whose "little cracked photo" he carries with him at all times. The other two G.I.'s are Asch, who is Jewish, from Boston and married to a woman 15 years his senior and Joyner, a single nineteen-year-old from Michigan who likes neither African Americans, Jews or Catholics. Angelo, the seventy-year-old enigmatic Italian, completes this foursome. These four men from four different parts of the world are thrown together by combat; and their lives, if they survive, will be forever changed by this night.

What Mr. Bausch gives the reader in this short novel of 171 pages is a picture of every war. Some men do cowardly things while others, left to their own devices, show both individual and collective courage under the worst of conditions. Although these men are frightened and are young and far from home and family, they do what they have to do. Certain scenes from this novel reminded me of another fine novel about this era, Tony Earley's THE BLUE STAR and even Mary Tillman's sorrowful nonfiction book BOOTS ON THE GROUND BY DUSK.

Mr. Bausch's language is spare and completely appropriate for his bleak subject in this richly nuanced novel where the characters come alive on every page. His discription of Marson's leave-taking from his family, so powerful and beautifully written, touches a chord in all of us who have ever left the comfortable nest of home for whatever reason: "It came to him [Marson] that he had taken this scene, this street, these people, for granted, had simply accepted all of it, and them, as his world. He had a thought: this is the surround. Just the word, surround, in that sentence, seemed freighted with new meaning. It could not be spelled any other way, was not the word surroundings. It was a different word. It was his life itself, containing his home, these parked cars, this house, this sky. . . It caught his breath."

PEACE will speak to you on many levels. I have only read previously the novel VIOLENCE by this writer. I suspect that the loss is mine.

Peace by Richard Bausch is an outstanding WW II novel. I read it over Memorial Day Weekend, and found Bausch's writing exquisite, and the story haunting and utterly believable.

This is a beautifully crafted novel, somewhere north of a short-story, but still a satisfying, rich read. The prose is spare, the feelings and insights intense, the characters briefly drawn but memorable. I couldn't put the book down, and reread chapters several times, amazed at the author's ability to say so much in so few words. Highly recommended. This is a story that stays with you.
Armin
Much discussion about the future of the literary novel (as opposed to airport bookstall blockbuster) in this age of blogs, essays, television art, arty cinema and the rest. Bausch's "Peace" is a thoroughly old-fashioned novel. Finely-written (Hemingway would have tipped his hat), it tells a STORY about men at WAR. Not my favourite genre but, of its sort, as good as it gets.

Joe Roeber
Excellent short novel, tight, taught and well written. Leaves you with the sense of being on the mountain with them.
