5.0 out of 5 stars A whole war, played out in 15 souls, 27 Nov. 2012
As a (sporadic) Rosslyn Park spectator, this book really struck home.
Sensitively, deftly - and with the most astonishing depth of research - the author reveals the inner lives of 15 extraordinary Park men. One especially stays in the mind - Nowell Oxland - whose final haunting poem was sent to The Times by his long-term friend Amy, and published posthumously. Commentators at the time said:'a soul that gave expression to such fine pages must have a wonderful vision of life.' Nearly a century later, it seems Stephen Cooper and Amy have much in common; both have brought a remarkable insight on war to the notice of us all. Don't let these fine pages pass you by.
