A must for Cricket lovers, 14 Nov. 2013
My son sent me this book as a birthday present and I must confess that I had never heard of Percy Jeeves, but once starting the book had difficulty in putting it down,it is beautifully written with an astonishing amount of research into the history of a man who would surely have gone on to represent his country but for the dreadfull events of the Great war. The author not only brings to the reader the action on the cricket field but also manages to convey the horrors of the trenches. A truly memorable read.
