A platoon of inexperienced British soldiers crosses to France; they find themselves at Ypres where the battle-weary Allied troops are dug in, and slaughter surrounds them. With their young, upright officer Freddy Mann, they are soon in the thick of it, burying the dead, experiencing the terror of bombardment, being picked off by snipers, with some unable to cope and refusing to go over the top. Freddy goes from being an idealistic officer barely out of school, to battle-hardened cynic, hanging on as those around him are cut down, maimed or crack. Suffering a crisis of faith, he loses belief in the war and everything he once stood for . . .

A shipwreck brings Lemuel Gulliver to Lilliput, where he finds himself in a kingdom of tiny people. This experience is later reversed when he lands among the giants of Brobdingnag. And yet more contrasts lie in store for him between the Houyhnhnms - a race of noble horses - and the savage sub-human Yahoos. Gulliver's Travels has not been out of print since its publication in 1726. Readers, 'from the cabinet council to the nursery', have enjoyed Swift's fusion of fantasy and reality on many levels. While politics and religion are prime targets for his satire, he also holds a mocking mirror to human nature in general.
