Explores Pat Barker’s extensive research into the years 1917-1918, and the lives of Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen and W H R Rivers, in the ‘Regeneration trilogy’. This chapter looks at Barker’s experience of growing up with a World war One veteran, exploring the limits of the postmemorial relationship. It also asks what Barker’s meticulous recreation of the period and her fictional interventions can tell us about the limits of fiction which portrays historical figures.

Keywords:   Pat Barker, Regeneration trilogy, W H R Rivers, Postmemory
