"Vienna, 1914. Lucius is a twenty-two-year-old medical student when World War I explodes across Europe. Enraptured by romantic tales of battlefield surgery, he enlists, expecting a position at a well-organized field hospital. But when he arrives--at a commandeered church tucked away high in a remote valley of the Carpathian Mountains--he discovers a freezing outpost ravaged by typhus. The other doctors have fled, and only a single mysterious nurse named Sister Margarete remains. But Lucius has never lifted a surgeon's scalpel. And as the war rages across the winter landscape, he finds himself falling in love with the woman from whom he must learn a brutal makeshift medicine. Then one day, an unconscious soldier is brought in from the snow, his uniform stuffed with strange drawings. He seems beyond rescue, until Lucius makes a fateful decision that will change the lives of doctor, patient, and nurse forever"--Provided by publisher.… (lisätietoja)

Lucius is a young Austrian gentlemen whose true love is medicine. He enlists when WWI starts so he can get some real medical experience, and he is dispatched an out-of-the-way field hospital in the Carpathian Mountains. He arrives to find out what war really is like: hideous wounds, terrible operations, amputations, PTSD, delousing, typhus, dysentery, human villainy, short rations. His sole mentor is a nurse (and nun) named Margarete, who has been running the hospital after the death/desertion of previous doctors. Her practical skills immediately overshadow Lucius's proper medical education, but she gives Lucius guidance and support, teaching him how to treat the soldiers to bring them back to health. But, Margarete is not exactly what she seems, and the more Lucius falls for her, the more he senses she is hiding something. In the midst of everything, they are united in caring for Horvath, a Hungarian soldier suffering from very severe shell shock, Margarete demonstrates most definitely the love that she has developed for Lucius, who more than reciprocates. Then, they are separated by a series of events that make no sense. Tightly written until then, the book goes wonky, as Lucius ends up alone and miserable in Vienna. Eventually, he decides he must find her and the ending is just pitiful and depressing. ( )

So much to admire, and yet... Somber, meticulous writing in stately rhythms; imagery by turns gorgeous (when spring finally comes, "Harp strings of light broke through the nave") and appalling ("He had never seen such a scream, teeth glittering in the crimson mouth" of a dead man whose jaw has been blown off). Mason sucks you in and puts you right there, in an isolated, freezing church among the dead, the maimed and the dying soldiers, amputating, sewing, draining, bandaging. The introverted, awkward young medical student Lucius learns to cope under the direction of the lone nurse, a rifle-toting nun called Margarete, left to tend 60 desperately ill men when the winter, the lice, typhus and the stench of gangrene has killed or driven away the other doctors and nurses. And... you know where this goes, right? He falls in love with Margarete. And in the chaos of war, they lose each other, he spends much of the rest of the story trying to find her again. But their love story, which is perhaps reminiscent of the grandiose romance of Dr Zhivago (a novel and movie I loathe), simply doesn't come to life. I couldn't tell if this was intentional on the writer's part: is it because Lucius, though marked by his medical school teachers as one who has "an unusual aptitude for for perception of things that lie beneath the skin," has difficulty in actual relationships, so a rich love is something he can't quite have? He is obsessed with medicine, with the mechanics and functions and ways it all can go wrong, and so when he thinks he is in love, it's similarly clinical. While I was curious about how this would end, and because so much of the writing was quite wonderful, I kept reading but I didn't really *care* how it ended, and the resolution was just that: an ending. It does close with some hope for Lucius, that perhaps his carapace has cracked a bit, that he might go on to engage with the world, with its beauties and it sufferings, in a more meaningful way.

A frequently beautiful, vivid, powerful read, but marred by an emotional lack that keeps it from breaking your heart. ( )

I don’t understand the wide appeal of this novel; I am certainly in the minority with others who just didn’t care for it. I found the extremely graphic descriptions of the effects of the cold, of the war, and of the bullying in the guise of military discipline to be excessive. If there are lessons to be learned here, it’s that I shouldn’t put too much faith in the reviews of others and in the not so praise-worthy comments on book sites. Sometimes they just aren’t true. ( )

Daniel Mason's THE WINTER SOLDIER is easily one of the best, most compelling, character-driven, historical, LITERARY novels I have read in a long time. It caught me up with its WWI story of young Viennese med student, Lucius, who enlists as a 'medical lieutenant' and is thrust into service as a doctor for the Austro-Hungarian Empire in a remote field hospital in the Carpathian mountains, where he falls in love with a mysterious nursing sister, Margarete.

I read - and also loved - Mason's THE PIANO TUNER fifteen or more years ago, so expected this one to be good too. In fact I think it's even better. The ' winter soldier ' of the title is, firstly, one Jozsef Horvath, found beneath a pile of frozen bodies, barely alive and severely traumatized, unable to speak or move. Nursed back to the edge of normalcy by Lucius and Margarete, he suffers a grisly and brutal setback at the hands of a sadistic officer. Enough said; you have to read the atory. But the 'winter soldier' could be many others here too, especially Lucius himself, who is separated from Margarete in the heat of a battle with Russian Cossack cavalry, and then tried to find her for the next two years. He is also plagued by vivid nightmares and other symptoms of what we now call PTSD.

The post-war part of the book, as Lucius goes back to search for Margarete, is reminiscent of The Oddysey, with his many adventures and dangerous encounters, but, even more so, of another more obscure, beautifully written novel I read a few years back, also about WWI and eastern Europe, Andrew Krivak's THE SOJOURN.

I also was intrigued that Daniel Mason is a doctor, a practicing psychiatrist and professor of medicine, and I thought of other doctor-writers I have read and admired - Abraham Verghese (CUTTING FOR STONE), Ethan Canin (author of several fictional works and on faculty at the Iowa Writers Workshop), and, of course, the late Michael Crichton, who penned numerous bestsellers.

I absolutely loved THE WINTER SOLDIER. Daniel Mason is an extraordinarily gifted and talented writer. My very highest recommendation.
