5.0 out of 5 stars Jeeves, 8 Feb 2014

This review is from: The Real Jeeves: The Cricketer Who Gave His Life for His Country and His Name to a Legend (Hardcover)
An interesting and well-researched account of the life (and death) of the cricketer who impressed Plum sufficiently for him to name his most famous (??) creation after him. Brian Halford adopts a largely chronological approach to Percy Jeeves's life and cricket career and this works well in this case, given that, sadly, Jeeves had all too few seasons of top flight cricket. Little primary material remains but Halford has made good use of the material he has managed to find. All in all, I would recommend this insightful study; it nicely complements the ACSH series on the well known and not-so-well cricketers of the past and provides valuable insights into the life and times of Edwardian county cricketers. It also makes it abundantly clear why Plum was so impressed when he saw Jeeves in action and gives us as rounded a portrait as is now possible of the modest and likeable man whose lasting memorial is in that gentleman's gentleman.
