"A highly decorated English soldier and an acclaimed poet and novelist, Siegfried Sassoon won fame for his trilogy of fictionalized autobiographies that wonderfully capture the vanishing idylls of Edwardian England and the brutal realities of war. In this first novel of the semiautobiographical George Sherston trilogy, Sassoon wonderfully captures the vanishing idylls of the Edwardian English countryside. Never out of print since its original publication in 1928, when it won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, Sassoon's reminiscences about childhood and the beginning of World War I are channeled through young George Sherston, whose life of local cricket tournaments and fox-hunts falls apart as war approaches and he joins up to fight. Sassoon's first novel, though rife with comic characters and a jaunty sense of storytelling, presents his own loss of innocence and the destruction of the country he knew and loved." --from book description, Amazon.com

The capstone of Siegfried Sassoon's masterful George Sherston trilogy, Sherston's Progress, opens with Sherston under the care of neurologist Dr. W.H.R. Rivers, who allows the shell-shocked soldier to sort through his "futile demons" regarding the war still raging around him. After six months convalescing, Sherston rejoins his regiment before being dispatched to Ireland - where he attempts to reclaim some of the bucolic sense of his youth - then on to Palestine. He survives a gunshot to the head when back on the Western Front in France and ends up again with Rivers, who attempts to help Sherston journey through the aftereffects of war's particular horrors toward the beginning of a new life

Above the dreamless dead : World War I in poetry and comics( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the Great War dragged on and its catastrophic death toll mounted, poets turned their pens to a world upside down. Many of the Trench Poets, as they came to be called, were soldier-poets dispatching their verse from the front lines. Known for their impassioned portrayals of life and death on the Western Front, these poems became, for much of the world, the literary heart of the Great War. In Above the Dreamless Death, the words of the Trench Poets find dramatic expression and reinterpretation in the hands of some of the greatest cartoonists working today. This daring marriage of poetry and comics, edited by New York Times bestselling editor Chris Duffy, is a moving and illuminating tribute to those who fought and died in World War I"--Publisher description

As this may be a fictionalized account of Sassoon's experiences in the trenches of World War I, it seems the only fictionalized parts are the names of his characters.
