Memoirs of an Infantry Officer by Siegfried Sassoon 1st / 1st 1930

£250.00Price

London: Faber & Faber Limited (1930). First UK edition in very good condition. The jacket has two small tears to the top edge of the front panel and a light mark to the fore edge. There is minor wear to the spine ends and corners. The boards are dull in places albeit the pages are clean and with very little handling wear. Overall a very good copy.

 

Sassoon’s account of his experiences in the trenches during World War I, between the spring of 1916 and the summer of 1917, creates a picture of a physically brave but self-effacing and highly insecure individual. The narrative moves from the trenches to the Fourth Army School, to Morlancourt and a raid, then to and through the Somme. The narrator, George Sherston learns “that he is but one insignificant person caught up in events beyond anyone’s comprehension”.
