Description
Remembered as a poet and as the author of such historical fiction as I, Claudius, Robert Graves also produced this single memoir, an enormous success when it was first published in 1929 and now an enduring classic. In this soldier's story, Graves traces the horrors and the monumental loss of innocence that occurred as a result of World War I. Written after the war and as he was leaving England—he thought, forever—it bids farewell not only to his homeland, but also to a way of life swept away by the modern world. Paul Fussell called it "the best memoir of the First World War," and his introduction from the 1998 edition is included here.

"It is a permanently valuable work of literary art, and indispensable for the historian either of the First World War or of modern English poetry.... Apart, however, from its exceptional value as a war document, this book has also the interest of being one of the most candid self-portraits of a poet, warts and all, ever painted. The sketches of friends of Mr. Graves, like T.E. Lawrence, are beautifully vivid."—Times Literary Supplement
