When Sam Richardson returns in 1946 from the 'Forgotten War' in Burma to his home in Cumbria, he finds that in his absence his young family has altered immensely - his son barely remembers him and his wife has become an independent woman. The traumatic scenes of Burma have changed Sam too, making the confines of his working class home stifling. The result is a family in turmoil... The Soldier's Return is joined by two more outstanding novels from Melvyn Bragg.
