About Book

From AudioFile
Stanley McGeagh's low-key, dispassionate narration may at first seem unsuited to a novel set on the horrific Western Front of WWI. But Manning's novel is nothing if not matter-of-fact in its depiction of the lives of ordinary British infantry soldiers who are called upon to fight and die in the cause. Manning is concerned with the ordinariness of life even in the extraordinary situation of war. He details the drudgery, the camaraderie, the animosities, and the longings of soldiers, interspersed, of course, with moments of profound terror and dread. McGeagh's sober, measured reading gets across the notion that even when violence and destruction are the norms, the most mundane and fundamental aspects of living persist.
