A complex man who survived the horrors of fighting in the First World War, Siegfried Sassoon, a soldier decorated for his bravery on the battlefield, became a vocal critic of the government’s continuation of the war when he returned from service. He was adored by both members of the aristocracy as well as stars of London’s literary and theatre scene. But broken by the horrors of war, his life’s journey became a quest for salvation.
