A Farewell to Arms is a semi-autobiographical novel written by Ernest Hemingway, first published in 1929. The novel is told through the point of view of Lieutenant Frederic Henry, an American serving as an ambulance driver in the Italian army during World War I. The title is taken from a poem by 16th century English dramatist George Peele. The novel is said to have been written at the home of Hemingway's in-laws in Piggott, Arkansas and at the W. Malcolm and Ruth Lowry home at 6435 Indian Lane, Mission Hills, Kansas.
