|Description:||In the poem, Stringer paints the story of Hugh, the young man who rushes to join and go to war, and his friend Clyde, the young man who stays behind to work the farm on the prairie to feed the troops. Each fights the enemy presented to them; one 'fighting the Hun' and the other fighting the drought and frost and the loss of his girl, Lynn, to the soldier. The war ends, but for Hugh, Clyde and Lynn, it is a shadowed victory. [Suggest a different description.]|

Arthur Stringer (February 26, 1874 – September 13, 1950) was a Canadian novelist, screenwriter, and poet who later moved to the United States.
He published 45 works of fiction and 15 other books, in addition to writing numerous filmscripts and articles.
Stringer was popular in his day for his crime fiction and his wilderness adventures, but he wrote in many genres, from social realism (his "Prairie" trilogy, 1915–1921) to psychological fiction (The Wine of Life (1921)).
