Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » The horror and glory of war has always fascinated me. Three outstanding books (of hundreds) are Siegfried Sassoon's Memoirs of an Infantry Officer, Nicholas Monsarrat's HMS Marlborough Will Enter Harbour, now sadly out of print, and The Last Enemy by Flying Officer X (Richard Hillary).

Author Biography - Siegfried Sassoon

Siegfried Sassoon was born in 1886 and educated at Clare College, Cambridge. He served in the trenches during the First World War, where he began to write the poems for which he is remembered. Despatched as 'shell-shocked' to hospital, he organised public protest against the war. His poetry initially met with little response, but his reputation grew steadily in the following decades. Apart from the War Poems of 1919, he published eight volumes of verse during his lifetime. But it is as a novelist and autobiographer that he is perhaps better known. Sassoon's semi-autobiographical trilogy, Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man (1928), Memoirs of an Infantry Officer (1930) and Sherston's Progress (1936), was outstandingly successful. He published several more volumes of autobiography, including Siegfried's Journey (1945), before his death in 1967.
