Description - The Middle Parts of Fortune: Text Classics by Frederic Manning

Based on the author's own experiences, The Middle Parts of Fortune is a breathtaking account of the Great War and the men who fought it. First published anonymously in 1929 because its language was considered far too frank for public circulation, The Middle Parts of Fortune was hailed by T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound, by Lawrence of Arabia and Ernest Hemingway, as an extraordinary novel. Its author was in fact Frederic Manning, an Australian writer who fought in the Battle of the Somme in 1916, and who told his story of men at war from the perspective of an ordinary soldier. Never before published in Australia, The Middle Parts of Fortune is now recognised as a twentieth - century classic. 'The finest and noblest book of men in war.' Ernest Hemingway
