  • Good-bye to All That by Sir Andrew Motion
    Good-bye to All That (English, Paperback)

    There was no patriotism in the trenches. It was too remote a sentiment, and rejected as fit only for civilians. As Blighty, Great Britain was a quiet, easy place to get back to out of the present foreign misery, but as a nation it was nothing. This is the memoir of the First World War.
