About this book
A new edition of the classic epic novel, published to tie in with a new BBC adaptation of the book. With an introduction by Tom Stoppard, who is the scriptwriter. Set between 1911 and the end of WWI, it has drawn comparisons with "Downton Abbey", and the TV series will feature Benedict Cumberbatch, Rupert Everett, Rebecca Hall and Miranda Richardson.
The Great War changes everything. In this tale, spanning over a decade, war turns the world of privileged, English aristocrat Christopher Tietjens upside down. It forces him to question everything he holds dear - social order, morality, marriage and loyalty. And it rocks the very foundations of English society.
