Robert Graves' searing autobiography and an emotional firsthand account of life in the First World War trenches. A superb and graphic storyteller, Graves begins with the petty cruelties of his public school upbringing. Then, almost in 'fly-on-the wall' documentary style, he paints devastating portraits of war: of a young man's hell, of meaningless sacrifice, of everyday heroism, and of the idiocy of the military command. Even accomplishing some moments of humour, Goodbye to All That is an enthralling listen, bringing the listener into the midst of the battleground. It is widely recognised as one of the most powerful insights into the experience of war; of what it actually felt like to be there and to be a survivor.
