Review: Four Soldiers, by Hubert Mingarelli

Despite the title, this is not a book about war, but about friendship. It tells the simple story of four men serving in the Red Army during the Russian Civil War, but has almost no combat, nor deaths. It has nothing of the period, no discussion of politics, no history — it could have been set anywhere, at any time. Because of that, it is a universal story, touching and on a very human scale. Highly recommended.
