About this book
Reissued in a stunning new jacket. Set before and during the great war, "Birdsong" captures the drama of that era on both a national and a personal scale.
Stephen Wraysford, a young Englishman, arrives in Amiens in northern France in 1910 to stay with the Azaire family, and falls in love with unhappily married Isabelle. But, with the world on the brink of war, the relationship falters, and Stephen volunteers to fight on the Western Front.
