Almost all of the characters exhibit some form of bravery and courage in A Farewell to Arms. Set against the backdrop of World War 1. The world seems to be coming apart at the seams, and yet each character finds a way to do the right thing and to enjoy happiness whenever and wherever they may find it (no matter how brief that might be). It is treated as a binding thread (motif) that runs through the entire novel.
