Soldiers Home Summary
The story begins with a very brief background of Harold Krebs’ life. Before the war, he attended a Methodist college in Kansas where he was part of a fraternity. In 1917, Krebs “enlisted in the Marines” and did not return to the United States from Germany until 1919 (Hemingway 162). The way Krebs fits in with his fraternity shows the stark contrast that comes later in the story when he returns from the war as a different person and does not fit in anymore. It is then given that Krebs’ home is a small town in Oklahoma. By the time of his return, the town had already given the returned soldiers a big, elaborate welcoming, so the people were used to it, and Krebs’ return seemed late and irrelevant since the war had already been over for some time. “People seemed to think it was rather ridiculous for Krebs to be getting back so late, years after the war was over” (162). This really exposes the lack of emotion that is the tone of the story. Hemingway then provides the names of all five battles Krebs was involved in Belleau Wood, Soissons, the Champagne, St. Mihiel, and the Argonne Forest. This number of battles shows the extent of Krebs’ service that has hardened him. At first, Krebs “did not want to talk about the war at all”, but as time progressed at home, he wanted to talk about the war but no one wanted to hear about it. The people of his town “had heard too many atrocity stories to be thrilled by actualities” (Hemingway 162).
