The celebrated British poet, editor, critic, novelist, and diarist Siegfried Sassoon (1886-1967) enlisted for military service on the first day of World War I; his friends in the service included Robert Graves and Wilfred Owen. Sassoon's war poems were originally published in The Old Huntsman (1917) and Counter-Attack (1918). After the war, he went on to write several other books of poetry and criticism, as well as six volumes of prose autobiography.Review:
One of the most exquisite literary products of the early 20th century...James Wilby reigns in his narrative to start with, adopts a hectic pace for gallops over gorse and heathland, then slows again for the elegiac wartime coda. * The Times * The war we're told changed everything. Learning, as we begin to do here, how it changed the infinitely complex Sassoon is fascinating. * Sue Arnold, The Guardian *
