From the Inside Flap
Robert Graves' superb autobiography tells the story of his life at public school and as a young officer during the First World War.
'From the moment of its first appearance an established classic' --John Wain in the Observer
'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' --The Times Literary Supplement
'One of the classic accounts of the Western Front. . . In it the veteran survivors recognised their own war' The Times
