Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAce: Frederic Henry is probably one of the most straightforward examples of TheAce in Hemingway's bibliography, bordering on TestosteronePoisoning, yet he still can't find happiness after he leaves the war behind, as symbolized by the major DownerEnding of [[ItWasHisSled Catherine and his child's death.]]

Frederic Henry, a volunteer American ambulance driver, serves in Italy during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. Whilst abroad, he meets British nurse [[SatelliteLoveInterest Catherine Barkley]] and [[HelloNurse becomes attracted to her]]. He gets a chance to consummate his attraction to her after being wounded at the front and [[FlorenceNightingaleEffect shipped back to hospital]]. By the end of the summer, Catherine is three months pregnant. Once healed, Frederic returns to the front just in time for it to collapse and the Austro-Hungarians to come pouring through; he, like the other officers, are rounded up by the [[SecretPolice "battle police"]] to be [[YouHaveFailedMe executed for the defeat]]. Frederic escapes through some quick {{Bad Ass}}ery and reunites with Catherine, whereupon the two escape to Switzerland in a rowboat. There they maintain an isolated but idyllic existence until Catherine goes into labor. The baby is stillborn. Catherine hemorrhages and dies. The end.
