Set before and during the great war, Birdsong captures the drama of that era on both a national and a personal scale. It is the story of Stephen, a young Englishman, who arrives in Amiens in 1910. His life goes through a series of traumatic experiences, from the clandestine love affair that tears apart the family with whom he lives, to the unprecedented experiences of the war itself.

"Amazing... I have read it and re-read it and can think of no other novel for many, many years that has so moved me or stimulated in me so much reflection on the human spirit" * Daily Mail *
"An overpowering and beautiful novel... Ambitious, outrageous, poignant, sleep-disturbing, Birdsong is not a perfect novel, just a great one" -- Simon Schama * New Yorker *
"Engrossing, moving, and unforgettable" * The Times *

“All time favourite”

An epic and beautiful book spanning the first world war, this is widely regarded as Faulks' best and it's not hard to see why. Riveting and heartfelt, if you liked Atonement you'll love this!
