Undertones of War

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

Review:

An established classic ... accurate and detailed in observation of the war scene and its human figures (D. J. Enright)

Synopsis:

In what is one of the finest autobiographies to come out of the First World War, the distinguished poet Edmund Blunden records his experiences as an infantry subaltern in France and Flanders. Enlisting at the age of twenty in 1916, Blunden took part in the disastrous battles of the Somme, Ypres and Passchendaele, describing the latter as 'murder, not only to the troops, but to their singing faiths and hopes'. In his compassionate yet unsentimental prose, he tells of the endurance, heroism, and despair found among the officers and men of his battalion. The selection of Blunden's poems show how he found hope in the natural landscape; the only thing that survives the terrible betrayal enacted in the Flanders fields.
