Searingly dispassionate in its account of life in the trenches and the commonplace nature of death, Peter Firth's narration of Sebastian Faulks's wartime epic is as shocking as it is honest.
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.
