The Middle Parts of Fortune

Somme and Ancre, 1916
Frederic Manning
Illustrated by Eri Griffin
Introduced by David Malouf

One of the finest war novels ever written, describing the Battle of the Somme from the viewpoint of an ordinary soldier.

This deeply affecting novel was first published anonymously in 1929 with a print run of just 600. Describing the Battle of the Somme from the viewpoint of an ordinary soldier, it gained instant notoriety for its blunt language and graphic depiction of war. An expurgated version entitled Her Privates We was released a year later, and it was only in 1977 that The Middle Parts of Fortune was republished in the powerful original form used for this Folio edition.
