Hard to believe one can discuss a book about homosexuality in the time of The Great War and not mention Pat Barker's superb Regeneration trilogy--fiction based brilliantly but creatively on the lives and work of Sigfried Sassoon, Rupert Brooke, and the gay psychiatrists who served in the trenches--literally and figuratively in those days. Stupendous novels.
