Christopher Tietjens has long loved the beautiful young suffragette Valentine, but the pair are held apart by Christopher's loyalty to his wife Sylvia, and to a set of principles which belong to an old world, and which are about to be swallowed up in the mud and chaos of the Western Front.
This majestic four-part novel is one of the finest achievements of twentieth-century literature.
