This beautiful boxed set brings together four significant books about the First World War. It includes Robert Grave's great memoir Goodbye to All That, All Quiet on the Western Front, the finest novel by a contemporary, written from the point of view of a German soldier, Birdsong, Sebastian Faulk's modern novel that is unique in its understanding of the trauma of war and Poetry of the First World War, an anthology which includes all the major - and some of the lesser-known - poets of that terrible conflict.
