Mr. Britling Sees It Through is a wartime novel by English writer, H. G. Wells, first published in 1916. One of the most popular novels in the UK and Australia during World War I, it tells the story of Mr Britling, his complex character and relationships with his wife, his affairs, his son who goes off to fight in the War, and a German friend, who is forced to leave the country at the start of the War. The book includes an exposition of the author's non-sectarian religious faith ('Religion is the first thing and the last thing, and until a man has found God and been found by God, he begins at no beginning, he works to no end. He may have his friendships, his partial loyalties, his scraps of honour. But all these things fall into place and life falls into place only with God. Only with God. God, who fights through men against Blind Force and Night and Non-Existence; who is the end, who is the meaning.') The Russian writer Maxim Gorkey called the book: 'the finest, most courageous, truthful, and humane book written in Europe in the course of this accursed war . . at a time of universal barbarism and cruelty, your book is an important and truly humane work.'
