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.

Besides many characters being based on [[WriteWhoYouKnow people the author knew]], this novel is useful to Hemingway scholars as it provides the first incarnations of the famed Hemingway "code hero". Frederic Henry is TheStoic, relates to the world in a largely physical manner, he has trouble not being a JerkAss sometimes, and his thoughts revolve around girls and drink. MainCharacters in Hemingway novels would continue in this vein throughout most of his body of work.

The novel is considered one of the great classics of American fiction, and chances are that if you attended an American high school, you read it there. (This just highlights one of the downsides of Hemingway's "[[BeigeProse iceberg theory]]" of fiction: it relies on {{Subtext}}, which, depending on your age and/or maturity level, you might not get.)
