Memoirs of a Fox-hunting Man by Siegfried Sassoon



George Sherston develops from a shy and awkward child, through shiftless adolescence, to an officer just beginning to understand the horrors of trench warfare. The world he grows up in, of village cricket and loyal grooms, had vanished forever by the time Sassoon wrote this book, but he captures it with a lyricism and gentleness that defy nostalgia.
A bestseller on publication in 1928, this superb evocation of the Edwardian age has remained in print ever since. It was the first volume of a classic trilogy, completed by "Memoirs of an Infantry Officer" and "Sherston's Progress," that charted both the destruction of the world for which Sassoon fought, and his own emergence as one of Britain's finest war poets.
