The official TV tie-in to the new BBC adaptation of Ford Madox Ford's epic novel
The Great War changes everything. In this epic tale, spanning over a decade, war turns the world of privileged, English aristocrat Christopher Tietjens upside down. It forces him to question everything he holds dear – social order, morality, marriage and loyalty. And it rocks the very foundations of English society.
This is a powerful story about love, betrayal and disillusionment in a time of horror and confusion by one of Britain’s finest novelists.
Ford Madox Ford's monumental novel came to our screens in August 2012 as a major BBC adaptation, with a screenplay by the legendary playwright Tom Stoppard and a stellar cast that included Benedict Cumberbatch. This edition of the novel includes all four parts, originally published separately between 1924 and 1928.
“The finest English novel about the Great War.”
