Most widely held works by Henri Barbusse
Under fire the story of a squad by Henri Barbusse ( Book )
39 editions published between 1917 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on his own experience of the Great War, Henri Barbusse's novel is a powerful account of one of the greatest horrors mankind has inflicted on itself. For the group of ordinary men in the French Sixth Battalion, thrown together from all over France and longing for home, war is simply a matter of survival, lightened only by the arrival of their rations or a glimpse of a pretty girl or a brief reprieve in the hospital. Reminiscent of classics like Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms" and Remarque's "All Quiet on the Western Front," "Under Fire" (originally published in French as "La Feu") vividly evokes life in the trenches -- the mud, stench, and monotony of waiting while constantly fearing for one's life in an infernal and seemingly eternal battlefield

Staline; un monde nouveau vu à travers un homme by Henri Barbusse ( Book )
29 editions published between 1935 and 2006 in French and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dernier essai paru du vivant de son auteur, il occupe une place à part dans son oeuvre. Il a été mis en chantier après que Barbusse, ayant rencontré Staline, a proposé à celui-ci l'idée d'un tel travail ; le chef politique donne alors à l'écrivain libre accès aux archives soviétiques, et lui adjoint même son secrétaire Kaganovitch pour l'aider dans ses recherches. L'ouvrage paraît en mars 1935 : Barbusse y dépeint l'URSS comme une force en marche. Plus que la biographie d'un homme c'est celle du pouvoir communiste
