All the characters in this story reflect the "Lost Generation", men and women whose lives were taken or dictated by WW1. Traditional ideas of faith, love, death and morality were questioned and examined. Although few characters have meaningful conversations about the war, the experience was all consuming. They desperately searched for identity through the chaos and destruction.
