This review is from: Public Schools and the Great War (Hardcover)
This is definitely not just a book for posh people who went to posh schools! It is a brilliant and readable analysis of the effect of the Great War on society (with the emphasis not surprisingly on public schools)and the effect of public school old boys on the War. Dr Seldon can be relied on to be informed, authoritative and thought-provoking and this book is no exception. The slaughter of a generation of young men who generally speaking led from the front makes sobering and humbling reading. Not to be missed. A lot of worthwhile knowledge well presented for £16!
