The Complete Memoirs of George Sherston. Being Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man, Memoirs of an Infantry Officer and Sherston's Progress - Siegfried Sassoon

1937 - Faber and Faber, London - First Collected Edition
A finely bound copy of Sassoon’s trilogy of autobiographical Great War memoirs. A trilogy that charted both the destruction of the world for which Sassoon fought, and his own emergence as one of Britain's finest war poets.

Sassoon became a symbolic figure of dissent within the armed forces, when he made a lone protest against the continuation of the war in his "Soldier's Declaration" of 1917. He was subsequently admitted to a military psychiatric hospital, where he made firm friends with Wilfred Owen. Sassoon later won great acclaim for his prose - notably his three-volume fictionalised autobiography, collectively known as the "Sherston trilogy", and published here for the first time in one book.
