Regeneration - Pat Barker

I read this novel for 2 reading challenges and really enjoyed it.
It is set during the war in a recovery centre for soldiers who have return from war as they are suffering some form of mental breakdown. The author builds this story up out of the real life meeting and relationships between the British poets Robert Graves, Seigfried Sasson and Wilfred Owen.
The book is fantastically well written and shows the horror of the war through the mens, memory and deteriation.
A 5 star read
