Ty Hale, a young corporal from Lovington, New Mexico, finds himself alone in the middle of a grain field in Normandy after being knocked unconscious by the explosion of a German artillery shell. Stunned from the explosion and overwhelmed by visions of the grandfather who raised him and the simple life of the New Mexico prairie he has left behind, Ty attempts to rejoin his unit but instead stumbles onto a country estate and inextricably into the lives of its inhabitants.

Philippe Gaston, a former music teacher, his stunningly beautiful daughter Renée, and Hans Heinike, a German deserter and an accomplished musician, are attempting to carve out a normal existence in spite of the chaos and destruction that surrounds them. As Philippe devotes his time to his German protégé, Ty and Renée fall in love and Ty learns of the Gaston estate's unique legacy of survival and the most recent story of violence and sacrifice that has preserved this pristine oasis in the midst of a raging war.

The music that permeates their solitary existence, whether it be the buzzing and chattering of insects and birds, a violin and human voice joined in concert, or the fire of machine guns and the distant rumble of tanks, draws these unlikely comrades together and reveals the common humanity that resides in us all. The war, the music, the love, and the rhythms of nature are all timeless and eternal.

  • The book cover doesn't describe the text, but I bought this book for $5.16 from Amazon. After the reading, I've never got so much wisdom with so little of my own effot. Thanks, Max Evans, ol' dog-faced infantry man.

    One thing survivors of wars learn is a wisdom for the brief interludes of peace before the next war. In "War & Music" we are blessed with Max's wisdom, an old soldier who survived the Normandy beachhead, as well as a 500-pound bomb explosion.

    I recall a dear uncle who fought the same war and was captured by the Germans. He died fifty years later, his lips forever sealed about the horrors of war. Yet, Max who has been writing good books for over fifty years, has dug deep into his memories to extract the sound of music from the horrors of war and blessed us with a love story. This is unique when we endure media accounts of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistant limited to body counts.

  • Knowing that "War and Music" by legendary New Mexico author Max Evans is probably his last novel, made the reading of this finely crafted story all the more sweeter. My mother gave me this book three years ago for Christmas, and I finally took the time to savor each page, each character and situation, knowing that Mr. Evans based his novel on his experiences during WWII. The tale primarily takes place in Normandy, France, but there are many references to New Mexico, and I found myself re-reading whole passages out loud to my husband so I could share this story with someone else.

    There's a very disturbing scene in the book that I will always refer to as the "French farm house scene," and it will forever haunt me for it's stark and macabre setting now stamped on my brain. What this scene taught me is that people can die in war without ever being hit by a bullet or a bomb.

    From the moment I began reading until I turned the last page, the story, the setting, the characters, and the tightly woven plot intrigued me, but I was also saddened that mankind will always find a way to feed "the beast of war." Mr. Evans shows us the brutality we humans are capable of, but he also shows us that we are equally capable at creating art, music, and beautiful stories such as "War and Music."

    Kathleen M. Rodgers ~ author of "The Final Salute"

  • I recently read "War and Music" by Max Evans after a coworker lent me the book. At first I was hesitant to begin reading it as it did not appear to fit the usual brand of fiction I read (I'm a 30-year old male that generally reads crime fiction, horror novels, and sci-fi), but the further I got into the novel the more I began to appreciate it.

    As noted by another reviewer, Mr. Evan's prose is quite poetic throughout the novel. It all flows together to create a somewhat hypnotic effect. While I found that some of the dialogue in the novel didn't seem to fit a young soldier, it added to the surreal feeling of the story.

    I won't go much into the plot of the novel, as that was thoroughly covered by the San Francisco Book Review. However, if surrealist war stories interest you, I would highly recommend "War and Music." The corporal's stay at the mansion is a surreal dream vacation away from the nightmare of WWII. In fact, if I had to quickly describe the novel to someone, I would compare it to the French Planation scene of "Apocalypse Now Redux" (if it was directed by Bernardo Bertolucci).

    Give this book a chance if you're interested in reading a story about WWII that provides an authentic sense of being a young, lost solder in a war, but doesn't focus entirely on battle scenes and gruesome action (although there is a little bit of that included as well).
