[5] Clarté, an international group of progressive West European writers, set up by Henri Barbusse in 1919 on the basis of the Association Républicaine des Anciens Combattants of France which was later joined by similar groups in other countries to form the Internationale des Anciens Combattants. The group published a monthly journal under the some name (it appeared in Paris at intervals from October 1919 to January 1928). When Barbusse resigned as its editor (in April 1924), the journal ceased to be progressive and in 1928 went out of circulation, while the group broke up.
