In In another country, the major who has many medals never talks about them. He had complimented me on how I spoke In another country, and we talked together very easily.
Another boy who walked with us sometimes and made us five wore a black silk handkerchief across his face because he had no nose then and his face was to be rebuilt. The doctor assures the American that he will again play football even though his knee does not bend.
There were usually funerals starting from the courtyard.
Within their group, however, there are also differences. An Italian major, who used to be the greatest fencer in Italy before he was wounded, befriends the American, assisting him in learning to speak Italian grammatically.
It was an idiotic idea, he said, "a theory like another". First, he creates an older, seasoned code hero, a man who has confronted life and has experienced the hard, cruel world but has not given in to any display of emotion; he has carefully refrained from baring his emotions except in this very rare case of the death of his young wife.

Three young Italians from near Milan, in contrast to the American, have received wounds and medals because of bravery in battle. He was a small man and he sat straight up in his chair with his right hand thrust into the machine and looked straight ahead at the wall while the straps thumbed up and down with his fingers in them.
Beyond the old hospital were the new brick pavilions, and there we met every afternoon and were all very polite and interested in what was the matter, and sat in the machines that were to make so much difference.
Nothing about it has been decided yet. There was a time when none of us believed in the machines, and one day the major said it was all nonsense.
Additionally, Nick feels that he has not served as a participant in the war. There were three boys who came each day who were about the same age I was. The American feels close to this young man because his bravery could not be tested.
The photographs did not make much difference to the major because he only looked out of the window. But I stayed good friends with the boy who had been wounded his first day at the front, because he would never know now how he would have turned out; so he could never be accepted either, and I liked him because I thought perhaps he would not have turned out to be a hawk either.
He was wearing his cape and had his cap on, and he came directly toward my machine and put his arm on my shoulder.
The boys at first were very polite about my medals and asked me what I had done to get them.Though its narrator is never named, “In Another Country” is widely accepted as one of Hemingway’s series of stories featuring Nick Adams, a largely autobiographical character, as the protagonist.
