"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)
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’
