Summary:
"In this soldier's story, first published in 1929, poet Robert Graves traces the monumental loss of innocence that occurred as a result of World War I. Written after the war and as Graves was leaving England - he thought, forever - Good-bye to All That bids farewell not only to his birthplace. By the year of his departure, a way of life had ended, and England and the modern world would never be the same. Tracing Graves's upbringing through his entry into the war at age twenty-one as a patriotic captain in the Royal Welch Fusiliers, this dramatic, poignant, and often wry memoir depicts all the horrors and disillusionment of the Great War, from life in the trenches and the loss of dear friends to the absurdity of government bureaucracy."--BOOK JACKET.
