Pat Barker's award-winning Regeneration Trilogy - comprising Regeneration, The Eye in the Door and The Ghost Road - is the heart-rending story of the last two years of the First World War seen through the eyes of army psychologist William Rivers and damaged soldier Billy Prior.

As Rivers struggles with the responsibility of helping the men in his charge - including the traumatized poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen - only to see them returned to the front, we see how an entire generation of young men was brutalized by the horrors of the trenches.

'What Barker does in The Regeneration Trilogy is explore with gritty realism - and absolute clarity of vision - the whole dirty, glorious and horrifying business of war.' Sunday Telegraph

'One of the richest and most rewarding works of fiction of recent times.' The Times Literary Supplement

'A vivid evocation of the agony of the First World War and a multi-layered exploration of all wars. A fine anthem for doomed youth.' Time Out

'A new vision of what the First World War did to human beings, male and female, soldiers and civilians.' A. S. Byatt, Daily Telegraph

'Unforgettable, frightening . . . at the end, I had tears running down my cheeks.' Observer

'Harrowing, original, unforgettable.' Independent
