In 1998, the Modern Library ranked The Good Soldier 30th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. Set just before World War I, the novel is told using a series of flashbacks in non-chronological order, through a rather unreliable narrator; for as it turns out, the story is not what we are led to believe at the beginning. The novels original title was The Saddest Story, from the novels opening lines This is the saddest story I have ever heard; however, with the onset of World War I, the publishers asked Ford for a new title, to which he sarcastically suggested The Good Soldier, and so it was named.
