The main conflict in A Farewell to Arms is internal character conflict between Henry's love and his duty to serve.

The conflict was never really resolved. After Catherine and her son dies, Henry walks off into the sunset to wander for the rest of his days.

A Farewell to Arms
The mood of A Farewell to Arms is happy at first and fluctuates between happiness and despair. It ends in despair, however.
