The Lonely Warrior by Claude C. Washburn (1883 - 1926).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-lonely-warrior-by-claude-washburn/


An idealistic American enlists and fights in The Great War. This novel focuses on his life after returning to the US “hard-boiled” and cynical, a disillusioned and embittered young man who has lost all interest in his family, his job, and his fiancé. Outraged by the fact of war, he takes refuge in apathy. It is the story of many others like himself who become lonely and discouraged and of their struggles to readjust to the changing world around them.
“It is a great book.” – William Allen White
“It has moments of rare vividness and power.” – Philadelphia Record

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Here's Section 1.

Not bad writing, and if it stays at this level I think it should be fine. BTW, as I understand it, after the prologue the rest of the book takes place postwar back in the States. So we can disassemble our weapons and unlace our boots. :)

Looks like there are no war scenes anywhere in the book. I think it's all about the war getting into Stacey's head and messing him up.

Here's Section 2.

Ann, here's wishing you and your family joyous holidays and a peaceful 2020.

Sections 2 and 3 are PL OK! This sounds like a great book so far, and we are only through the prologue! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too!

Section 4, aka Part 1, Chapter 1.

I agree this book has potential, and it's by an author surprisingly w/o a bio in Wikipedia.
