More About the Author

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in Bombay in December 1865. He returned to India from England shortly before his seventeenth birthday, to work as a journalist first on the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, then on the Pioneer at Allahabad. The poems and stories he wrote over the next seven years laid the foundation of his literary reputation, and soon after his return to London in 1889 he found himself world-famous. Throughout his life his works enjoyed great acclaim and popularity, but he came to seem increasingly controversial because of his political opinions, and it has been difficult to reach literary judgements unclouded by partisan feeling.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Samuel Romilly on 20 Mar 2013
Format: Hardcover
Written by one of our greatest authors, these volumes constitute the finest account of any regiment of the British army during the First World War and constitute one of the classic works on that war. They have an added poignancy in that his own son John, a lieutenant in the second brigade,had been killed at Loos in 1915. This was in part Kipling's tribute to his son, in part reparation for the fact that he had engineered his son's entry into the army when he had been medically disqualified. John was myopic, virtually blind when his glasses were off, not a good condition to have in battle. He walked blindly to disaster as did so many others not suffering from his deficiency. His sorrowing father's memorial to his son and the sons of many others is one of the most touching to come out of the war, and compliments Kipling's other great and lasting contribution to the memory of the fallen, the war graves commission.
