Product Description

About the Author

Geoffrey Moorhouse has been described as "one of the best writers of our time" (Byron Rogers, The Times), "a brilliant historian" (Dirk Bogarde, Daily Telegraph) and "a writer whose gifts are beyond" category" (Jan Morris, Independent on Sunday). His numerous books -- travel narratives, histories, novels and sporting prints -- have won prizes and been translated into several languages: To the Frontier won the Thomas Cook Award for the best travel book of its year. In 1982 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and in 2006 he became Hon DLitt of the University of Warwick. He has recently concentrated on Tudor history, notably with The Pilgrimage of Grace and, in 2005, Great Harry's Navy, which has just been followed by The Last Office: 1539 and the Dissolution of a Monastery. Born in Lancashire, he has lived in a hill village in North Yorkshire for many years. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been looking for books which analyse both the military and the civilian experiences during the Great War. So far, this is the only one I have been able to find. It is beautifully written and very well researched. It is not a cheerful or jolly read, but is is certainly an enlightening one. It is an inspiration to all of us who are trying to understand the impact of the Great War on British society.
