Booker Prize-winner Julian Barnes introduces Ford Madox Ford's masterpiece Parade's End - now a major new BBC/HBO TV adaptation - in this reissued Penguin Modern Classics edition.

A masterly novel of destruction and regeneration, Parade's End follows the story of aristocrat Christopher Tietjens as his world is shattered by the First World War.

Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) served with the British army in World War I, an experience that was to form the basis of his novel Parade's End , published in four parts from 1924 to 1928.

Julian Barnes' most recent novel is The Sense of An Ending , for which he won the 2012 Man Booker prize.
