Storyline

Goodbye, Boys! is the coming-of-age tale of three teenagers graduating from a Communist school during World War II.

However, they are asked to become officers in the military, and slowly their worlds begin changing forever. Their parents oppose them, they begin fearing losing each other and their families, and the military tricks and maneuvers them into joining the army instead of the navy.

Does the movie deviate from the book so much??
8 July 2004 | by paultov_49See all my reviews

The book provides the following details: 1. It was 1940, since soon after they left for the military academy the Russian-Finnish war started. The comments incorrectly implied that the boys were misled as to being sent to the academy and instead sent to the front. Not quite true, per book. Let's not forget that even in the chaos and terror of this time in Soviet Russia there was a certain pathological, but logic. 2. Only one of the friends was killed during the WWII-Viktor. The other became a doctor and was killed during Stalin's 1949-1952 wave of anti-Jewish terror. So called 'Delo Vrachey'. 3. The 'small' town in the book was actually Odessa which is neither small nor indistinct from both economic and cultural standpoint. PT
