Review: A MAN COULD STAND UP by Ford Madox Ford

Matt’s Book Blog recently read and reviewed A Man Could Stand Up by Ford Madox Ford for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

This is the third novel in the Parade’s End tetralogy, which Anthony Burgess called “the finest novel about the First World War.” The title echoes a remark made by a squaddie (grunt) that once peace finally comes, a man could stand up on a hill without the risk of anybody taking shots at him.
