Publisher Comments:

Paperback edition of Pat Barker's 1995 Booker Prize-winning novel, the final part in the trilogy that began with "Regeneration" and "The Eye in the Door". Lieutenant Billy Prior is on his way back to France after being treated for shellshock at the Craiglockhart War Hospital; he is convinced that the war can no longer surprise him.

Synopsis:

Based on a mix of real and imagined characters and events, this book concentrates on Sarah, a young woman working in a munitions factory, and on Wilfred Owen. The position of women has been a sub-theme throughout the books and here it moves to the forefront. The 1995 Booker Prize winner.
