During World War-I, he served the war as an Ambulance driver in Italian Army. While on duty, he sustained injuries and was admitted to a hospital in Milan. There he fell in love with an Italian nurse but she ditched him later for another man.This brought great pain to the young Hemingway who later expressed his agony through the novel "A Very Short Story" and later in "A Farewell to Arms". Hemigway returned to Chicago after the injury to recuperate and later take up another journalistic assignment. Here, he married Hadley Richardson and the couple flew to Paris where Hemingway joined as the foreign correspondent of Star. In Paris, Hemingway came in contact with some of the great writers of his generation such as Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, James Joyce, Pablo Picasso.  Here he had an opportunity to go to Writer's festival which inspired him to write The Sun Also Rises which narrates the Post War disillusionment of young generation. After publication of the novel, He divorced his first wife,  married Pauline Pfeiffer & returned to USA . During this period, he wrote Men without Women.In 1928, he wrote A Farewell to Arms, one of his finest works. In 1937, he met Martha Gellhorn, who later would become his third wife. Hemingway, in the mean time, shifted to a place near Havana in Cuba. In 1951, he wrote Old Man and the Sea, that would fetch him Pulitzer Prize.

 He wrote A Moveable Feast, a memoir of his years in Paris, and retired permanently to Idaho where he fought depression and various illness and finally committed suicide by shooting himself on the morning of July 2, 1961. Thus ended a great life in tragedy.
