About The Book
First published in 1934, Roger Vercel’s novel Captain Conan was awarded the Prix Goncourt for its unflinching assessment of the toll fierce combat had taken on the youth of France. Largely autobiographical and told from the perspective of a young lieutenant, the book follows the exploits of a French commando unit attacking Bulgarian outposts along the Romanian border. The unit is led by the twenty-three-year-old Captain Conan, a haberdasher’s son who finds his calling as a fearless killer ready to crawl through barbed wire and slit the throats of his enemies on midnight raids. Based on Vercel’s comrade to whom the book is dedicated, Conan is loyal only to his men, as all notions of patriotism are lost in place of the fraternity and brutality needed for survival and success in this close, bloody combat.
