9780141181585: The Middle Parts of Fortune: Somme And Ancre, 1916 (Penguin Modern Classics)

THE MIDDLE PARTS OF FORTUNE, published anonymously in 1929 under the title HER PRIVATES WE, was from the start an underground classic, considered the ultimate novel of trench warfare. This is a searing evocation of the horror, brutality, futility, nobility, and courage which are the staples in man's never-ending battle against the inevitability of death.

Review:

Outstanding. Almost certainly the finest work of its kind to emerge from the war (Max Hastings Guardian)

I read it over once each year to remember how things really were (Ernest Hemingway)

The finest novel to come out of the First World War (William Boyd)

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'
