What a brilliant and moving book - of love and endurance set during the WW1. The horror of war is depicted so amazingly well. The description of the trench warfare was very emotional. Faulks' wonderful narrative is beautifully written and gripping with Stephen, a complex and hard to pin down character and what happened to him is both ordinary and remarkable which seems like most of the men to have fought for their country. The other thread of Elizabeth, is one of hope and the importance of knowing where you came from an history.
