'A brilliant novel. Intense and subtle' Peter Kemp, Sunday Times Craiglockhart War Hospital, Scotland, 1917, and army psychiatrist William Rivers is treating shell-shocked soldiers. Under his care are the poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, as well as mute Billy Prior, who is only able to communicate by means of pencil and paper. Rivers's job is to make the men in his charge healthy enough to fight. Yet the closer he gets to mending his patients' minds the harder becomes every decision to send them back to the horrors of the front.

This is the first novel in Pat Barker's Man Booker Prize-winning Regeneration Trilogy: I: Regeneration II: The Eye in the Door III: The Ghost Road 'A vivid evocation of the agony of the First World War and a multi-layered exploration of all wars. A fine anthem for doomed youth' Time Out 'A novel of tremendous power' Margaret Forster 'Unforgettable' Sunday Telegraph 'One of the strongest and most interesting novelists of her generation' Guardian
