Spare and unsentimental, this series of episodes in the life of a platoon as it advances across war-torn Europe is among the most chillingly realistic literary depictions of WWII, coming as it does from the author’s first-hand experiences. It has been described as Baron’s best work. The Human Kind is poignant, shocking and bleak – but also full of the soldier’s humour, for which Baron has an unerring ear.
