Frederic Manning was born in Sydney in 1882. As a teenager he went with his tutor to England, where he eventually settled for most of his adult life. Manning began his career as a writer and poet in Britain with a narrative poem, The Vigil of Brunhild (1907), Poems (1910) and Scenes and Portraits (1909), a collection of short historical fiction. His work won him considerable attention and acclaim. He was also the principal reviewer for the Spectator and forged a wide circle of literary friends and acquaintances. When the First World War broke out Manning failed to pass officer training but enlisted anyway and was sent to France in 1916, where he fought in the Battle of the Somme and was promoted to the rank of second lieutenant. His most famous work, The Middle Parts of Fortune, was published anonymously in 1929 due to the book s shocking content. An expurgated version was published the following year with the title Her Privates We and under the pseudonym Private 19022 .The book was highly praised by his contemporaries. Manning died in Hampstead in 1935.
