9780099589235: The Middle Parts of Fortune (Vintage Classics)

'They can say what they bloody well like, but we're a fuckin' fine mob.'

Deep in the mud, stench of the Somme, Bourne is trying his best to stay alive. There he finds the intense fraternity of war and fear unlike anything he has ever known.

Frederic Manning's novel was first published anonymously in 1929. The honesty with which he wrote about the horror, the boredom, and the futility of war inspired Ernest Hemingway to read the novel every year, 'to remember how things really were so that I will never lie to myself nor to anyone else about them.

Review:

"It is the finest and noblest book of men in war that I have ever read. I read it over once each year to remember how things really were so that I will never lie to myself nor to anyone else about them" (Ernest Hemingway)

"The most truthful and profound exploration of the experiences of war...is to be found in The Middle Parts Of Fortune... Manning explored the moral ambiguities of war in the language of the men with whom he served. He articulated the suffering and comradeship of men who might have no other literary record" ( Guardian)

"Realism and art combined" ( Sydney Morning Herald)

"Manning's literary masterpiece" ( Sydney Morning Herald)

"Without doubt the greatest British novel of the war" ( Independent)

Book Description:

Set in the mud and stench of the Somme this is a grim, sardonic tale of war that led William Boyd to say 'this is the finest novel to come out of the First World War'
