Reprint. Originally published: London: Hutchinson, 1993.
Sebastian Faulks was the 1994 British Book Awards Securicor Omega Express Author of the Year.

Set before and during the great war, "Birdsong" captures the drama of that era on both a national and a personal scale.

It is the story of Stephen, a young Englishman, who arrives in Amiens in 1910.

His life goes through a series of traumatic experiences, from the clandestine love affair that tears apart the family with whom he lives, to the unprecedented experiences of the war itself.
