Sassoon was an English poet and prose-writer. Enlisted in the Sussex Yeomanry (1914) and commissioned into the Royal Welch Fusiliers (1915), Sassoon won an MC in 1916. He was invalided home in 1917 and wrote a public protest against the War. He published war poems The Old Huntsman (1917) and Counter-Attack (1918) and in 1920 read his anti-war poems on a lecture tour in America. During the inter-war years he brought out further volumes of poetry and during the Second World War published an autobiographical trilogy of war memoirs.
