Where most veterans of the Great War returned home traumatised by the carnage in the trenches, Siegfried Sassoon had received recognition for his superbly vivid poetry and the bravery both on the battle field and back home. In rapid succession, he had numerous homosexual affairs: none of them ultimately satisfying. Yet he also started on his great trilogy of anti-hero novels, "Memoirs of a Fox Hunting Man", "Memoirs of an Infantry Officer" and "Sherston's Progress". This volume of Sassoon's biography continues to show how a homosexual poet came to define heroism not only during the war, but even more so after the war.
