What did you like most about Parade's End - Part 2: No More Parades?

The book retains an intensity and a sense of tragedy throughout. The constant shifting of time and place within the narrative is disturbing in a way that adds to the story. The continued evocation of the phrase "no more parades" is an elegy. Ford can convey a comic and ridiculous side to his characters and their society without undermining the horror of war and its machinations.
