Synopsis

Craiglockhart War Hospital, Scotland, 1917, where army psychiatrist William Rivers is treating shell-shocked soldiers. Under his care are the poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, as well as mute Billy Prior, who is only able to communicate by means of pencil and paper. Rivers' job is to make the men in his charge healthy enough to fight. Yet the closer he gets to mending his patients minds the harder becomes every decision to send them back to the horrors of the front...Regeneration is the classic exploration of how the traumas of war brutalised a generation of young men. The first book in the Regeneration trilogy.

The first of a trilogy, this moving and disturbing novel explores the psychological aftermath of battle for soldiers being treated for shell shock at Craiglockhart War Hospital in Edinburgh. It draws on the efforts of Dr W.H.R. Rivers to introduce humane treatment in the context of the harsh, uncomprehending regime of the time, and features a fascinating insight into the effect the war had on Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon.

Judith Allnatt - 11/02/2014

A novel that looks at causes and aftermaths as much as the action of a crisis. I fell for a character - the charismatic and ambiguous Billy - and also for the astonishing and rich new view this novel offers into a war we think we know all about. The best modern novel on World War 1.
