The first volume in Siegfried Sassoon’s beloved trilogy,The Complete Memoirs of George Sherston, with a new introduction by celebrated historian Paul Fussell A highly decorated English soldier and an acclaimed poet and novelist, Siegfried Sassoon won fame for his trilogy of fictionalized autobiographies that wonderfully capture the vanishing idylls of Edwardian England and the brutal realities of war.            In this first novel of the semiautobiographical George Sherston trilogy, Sassoon wonderfully captures the vanishing idylls of the Edwardian English countryside. Never out of print since its original publication in 1928, when it won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, Sassoon's reminiscences about childhood and the beginning of World War I are channeled through young George Sherston, whose life of local cricket tournaments and fox-hunts falls apart as war approaches and he joins up to fight. Sassoon's first novel, though rife with comic characters and a jaunty sense of storytelling, presents his own loss of innocence and the destruction of the country he knew and loved.

Paul Fussell,critic, essayist, and cultural commentator, has recently won the H. L. Mencken Award of the Free Press Association. Among his books areThe Great War and Modem Memory,which in 1976 won both the National Book Critics Circle Award and the National Book Award;Abroad: British Literary Traveling Between the Wars; Wartime: Understanding and Behavior in the Second World War;and, most recently,BAD or, The Dumbing of America.His essays have been collected inThe Boy Scout Handbook and Other ObservationsandThank God for the Atom Bomb and Other Essays.He lives in Philadelphia, where he teaches English at the University of Pennsylvania.
