Is this sentence correct:

"I liked Italy - away from the front - particularly the peasants and the working people."

Is 'away from the front' an idiom?

And what does it mean?


In the context of a war, the Front refers to the battle front, ie the place where the two sides meet and fight.

If you are away from the front, you are not at the place where fighting is happening. It's not really an idiom.

Do you have a WW II context?
