Author: Siegfried Sassoon
Publisher: New York : Literary Guild of America, 1937.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Fiction : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Presents a classic among war story classics. As this may be a fictionalized account of Sassoon's experiences in the trenches of World War I, it seems the only fictionalized parts are the names of his characters. The story features an arc found in many other war memoirs: eager for combat and glory, and ends as disillusioned, angry, broken veteran.
