Presents an exploration of how the traumas of war brutalised a generation of young men.
1918, the closing months of the war. Army psychiatrist William Rivers is concerned for the men who have been in his care - particularly Billy Prior, who is about to return to combat in France with young poet Wilfred Owen. This book offers an account of the devastating final months of the First World War.
Eye in the Door
London, 1918. Billy Prior is working for Intelligence in the Ministry of Munitions. But his encounters with women and men - pacifists, homosexuals - conflict with his duties as a soldier, and it is not long before his sense of himself fragments and breaks down. This book studies the contradictions of war and of those forced to live through it.
