Description

The Middle Parts of Fortune - Somme and Ancre, 1916 by Frederic Manning.

Illustrated by Eri Griffin and introduced by David Malouf.

One of the finest war novels ever written, describing the Battle of the Somme from the viewpoint of an ordinary soldier.
This deeply affecting novel was first published anonymously in 1929 with a print run of just 600. Describing the Battle of the Somme from the viewpoint of an ordinary soldier, it gained instant notoriety for its blunt language and graphic depiction of war. An expurgated version entitled Her Privates We was released a year later, and it was only in 1977 that The Middle Parts of Fortune was republished in the powerful original form used for this Folio edition.

Bound in printed and blocked paper, set in Arno Pro, 304 pages, Frontispiece and 8 colour illustrations. With plain slipcase.

Will consider swapping with other Folio Society books.
