A masterpiece of wartime writing by one of the most esteemed novelists of the twentieth century
Christopher Tietjens has long loved the beautiful young suffragette Valentin, but the pair are held apart by Christopher's loyalty to his wife Sylvia, despite her callous infidelities, and to a set of principles which belong to an old world, and which are about to be swallowed up in the mud and chaos of the Western Front. This majestic four-part novel is one of the finest achievements of nineteenth century literature.
“The Parade's End series of novels is a tour de force of writing and intelligence”
A.S. Byatt, Guardian
“Incredible...greatest of all war books”
