Print
"This is the saddest story," the narrator notes of his friend Edward Ashburham's life. A superb soldier and the perfect English gentleman, the Ashburham has one fatal flaw with regard to affairs of love. Ford weaves a brilliant tale-long recognized as one of the masterpieces of twentieth century fiction-in which nothing is quite what it seems, including the narrator's telling of the tale.

The fragile pre-World War I society which the novel's four characters inhabit is torn apart revealing deceit, hatred, infidelity and betrayal. The 'good soldier's' life appears unimpeachable. But behind the facade his 'good' life was rotting away. The novel has been called 'one of the triumphs of 20th centruy literature.'
