    Paths of Glory, the basis for the powerful Stanley Kubrick movie starring Kirk Douglas, is a fact based novel about an injustice in the French front lines during The Great War Told from multiple points of view Cobb paints a portrait of the stupid and evil things that men are drawn to do during wartime, not necessarily deliberately but through laziness, or vanity or just plain thoughtlessness, as well as the bureaucracy that stifles clarity of thought and sends innocent men to their deathThat Paths of Glory, the basis for the powerful Stanley Kubrick movie starring Kirk Douglas, is a fact based novel about an inju...

    Much better than the film, which was good in it s own right However, the film tried to build up the character of Col Dax in order to give the film a hero The book is freed from this necessity Also, the book doesn t feel the need to offer any small measures of justice or redemption A powerful book.

    This book totally surprised me I found it at a used book store and didn t know anything about it Honestly one, if not the best, book about war and its absurdities that I have read There was nothing extraneous or unnecessary I can t believe it was written as long ago as it was Totally recommend.

    Paths of justificationI suspect that many people who are familiar with Stanley Kubrick s classic film Paths of Glory are unaware that it was based upon a novel by an author who is mostly forgotten Humphrey Cobb was born to American parents, talked his way into the Canadian army and fought in World War I in 1915, two years before the U.S entered the war Paths of Glory, like All Quiet on the Western Front, was written by someone who actually survived that war Published in 1935, five year Paths of justificationI suspect that many people who are familiar with Stanley Kubrick s classic film Paths of Glory are unaware that it was based upon a novel by an author who is mostly forgotten Humphrey Cobb was born to American parents, talked his way into the Canadian army and fought in World War I in 1915, two years before the U.S entered the war Paths of Glory, like All Quiet on the Western Front, was written by someone who actually survived that war Published in 1935, five years after All Quiet on the Western Front, Cobb s novel contained a cynicism that probably did not sit very well with Americans that were just recovering from that war only to contemplate the even greater, looming threat of Hitler and the Nazis.The narrator is omniscient and, God like, enters the minds of multiple characters and renders the mental processes and rationalizations that each character tells himself...
