About that time he, along with others, founded the Republican Association of Former Combatants, which was largely responsible for the split in the French Socialist party resulting in the organization of the Communist party in 1920. Barbusse joined the Communist party in 1923 and died in Moscow while visiting there: Translation of tile: 'The Fire, a soldier's notes' by Henri Barbusse appears in Gustave Téry's 'Oeuvre.'.
