Consisting of four novels - SOME DO NOT..., NO MORE PARADES, A MAN COULD STAND UP and THE LAST POST - PARADE'S END is the story of Christopher Tietjens and his progress from the secure world of Edwardian England into the First World War and beyond. Tietjens embodies the values of that ordered, predictable, hierarchic society of pre-1914. Contrasted with him and portrayed with equal clarity and depth is his wife Sylvia--beautiful, arrogant, reckless--a symbol of the new times. Their conflict, the chronicle of a family and of an era, makes PARADE'S END both a gripping study of character and a work of amazing subtlety and depth.
