Memoirs of an infantry officer by Siegfried Sassoon( Book )

In 1916, young George Sherston is deep in the trenches of WWI. For his decorated bravery, and also his harmful recklessness, he is soon sent to the Fourth Army School for officer training, then dispatched to Morlancourt, a raid, and on through the Somme. After being wounded by a bullet through the lung, he returns home to convalesce, where his questioning of the war and the British Military establishment leads him to write a public anti-war letter. Through the help of close friend David Cromlech, a medical board decides not to prosecute, but instead deem him to be mentally ill, suffering from shell-shock, and sends him to a hospital for treatment. (Based closely on author Sassoon's own war experiences, including the verbatim text of his "Finished with the War: A Soldier's Declaration", which was eventually read in the British House of Commons.)

"In a country where winter is one long night, Czar Guidon kept his court in terror and his son Safa imprisoned in the dome room at the top of a tower, while his sister Margaretta bided her time and plotted to succeed him. As a child, Safa had a friend in his nurse Marien, but her devotion was no match for the Czar. Power misused could be met only by power of a different kind, the power of the witch-girl Chingis. Out in the frozen wastes, in her magic hut that could run on chicken-legs, Chingis studied the words and runes that would give her power to wander in many worlds and learned how to understand the messages of the ghost drum; and at last she heard the cries of Safa in his prison." -- book jacket
