The Winter Soldier

Atmospheric. Readers who enjoy descriptive historical fiction are those most likely to enjoy Daniel Mason’s novel titled, The Winter Soldier. Set during World War I in Austria and Poland, the novel tells a story of war and medicine. The protagonist is a twenty-two-year-old medical student named Lucius Krzelewski, whose limited training has not prepared him for the field medicine he is called on to practice. Thanks to the expertise of Sister Margarete at the field hospital to which he is assigned, Lucius learns quickly how to care for wounded soldiers. Mason’s finely written prose makes every setting atmospheric, appropriate to the time and place described. Mason presents the condition of PTSD with insight and wisdom. Mason’s prose brings beauty to grim settings. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Winter Soldier from
