Synopsis

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. His life goes through 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.#83 in ABC My Favourite Book
