The Good Soldier is a novel written by Ford Madox Ford and first published in 1915.

This is an insightful and introspective account of the complexities of love, betrayal, and disillusionment. Told from the point of view of one of the main characters, John Dowell, the story depicts the complex relationships between two seemingly perfect couples: the Dowells and the Ashburnhams.

The book is a jigsaw puzzle of memories that unfold as the story unfolds, revealing the true personalities and secrets of each of the protagonists behind their façades of respectability. Edward Ashburnham, the "good soldier" of the book's title, is a complex and contradictory character whose actions are at the heart of this personal and marital tragedy.

This novel is an exquisite and painful exploration of human frailty and the eternal conflict between duty and desire. "The Good Soldier is a must-read for anyone interested in psychological depth and stylistic innovation in literature.

"This is the saddest story I have ever heard. We had known the Ashburnhams for nine seasons of the town of Nauheim with an extreme intimacy—or, rather with an acquaintanceship as loose and easy and yet as close as a good glove’s with your hand. My wife and I knew Captain and Mrs. Ashburnham as well as it was possible to know anybody, and yet, in another sense, we knew nothing at all about them."
