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.
Over the course of the novel he suffers 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.
