Synopsis: Inspired by a young man Edith Wharton met during her war relief work in France, A Son at the Front(1923) opens in Paris on July 30, 1914, as Europe totters on thebrink of war. Expatriate American painter John Campton, whose only son George, having been born in Paris, must report for duty in the French army, struggles to keep his son away from the front while grappling with the moral implications of his actions. A poignant meditation on art and possession, fidelity and responsibility, A Son at the Front is Wharton’s indelible take on the war novel.
