Consisting of four novels - SOME DO NOT..., NO MORE PARADES, A MAN COULD STAND UP and THE LAST POST - PARADE'S END is the story of Christopher Tietjens and his progress from the secure world of Edwardian England into the First World War and beyond. Tietjens embodies the values of that ordered, predictable, hierarchic society of pre-1914. Contrasted with him and portrayed with equal clarity and depth is his wife Sylvia--beautiful, arrogant, reckless--a symbol of the new times. Their conflict, the chronicle of a family and of an era, makes PARADE'S END both a gripping study of character and a work of amazing subtlety and depth.

From the Inside Flap:

This monumental novel, divided into four separate books, celebrates the end of an era, the irrevocable destruction of the comfortable, predictable society that vanished during World War I.

About the Author:

Born in Devon in 1873 and educated in England, Germany and France, Ford changed his original surname, Hueffer, in 1919, after having served with the British army in World War I (1914-1918). He wrote over 60 works including novels, poems, criticism, travel essays, and reminiscences. Ford also edited the English Review (1908-11) and the Transatlantic Review (1924, Paris). His greatest novels are generally agreed to be THE GOOD SOLDIER and PARADE'S END.
