John finds it hard to adapt to life back in England and is happy to return to the war; especially after the new distance between him and his sister, to whom he was previously close.The novel was first published by Hamish Hamilton in 1971 and then by Penguin Books in 1974.The novel begins with the protagonist of the novel 'John Hilliard' in a military hospital, recovering from a wound he received; he briefly speaks to Crawford, a doctor, whom he knows from childhood and greatly dislikes.It is when Hilliard returns home that he has trouble sleeping.This is not because of his memories of war, but from being at home, a place which he greatly dislikes.In Part Two, the group that Hilliard and Barton are in, B Company, is travelling to the front line at Feuvry.There are not enough horses so David walks alongside for the duration of the journey.His old batman is replaced with a new one called Coulter and he is placed in a room with a new Officer called David Barton in a rest camp while they wait to be called up to the front.During this time he becomes great friends with Barton, who is as yet untouched by the war.When Hilliard returns he finds that his batman and many other faces he knew have been killed.The group's Commanding Officer, Colonel Garrett, appears to have aged greatly in the short time Hilliard has been away, due to the stresses of war, and has taken to drinking quantities of whisky.
