Product Description

About the Author

Nobel prize-winning writer Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India, but returned with his parents to England at the age of five. Influenced by experiences in both India and England, Kipling s stories celebrate British imperialism and the experience of the British soldier in India. Amongst Kipling s best-known works are The Jungle Book, Just So Stories, and the poems Mandalay and Gunga Din. Kipling was the first English-language writer to receive the Nobel prize for literature (1907) and was amongst the youngest to receive the award. Kipling died in 1936 and is interred in Poets Corner in Westminster Abbey.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an account of the Royal Navy from early in WW1, and it certainly has a streak of propaganda to it. But it focuses more on the people than on the glories of war: they're doing a hard and dangerous job.

In other ways the style is uncomfortable for modern readers, although it doesn't have the weaknesses of such things as Kipling's stories of India. It is of its time, and that time was one of war.

This Kindle version is badly laid out. The chapters are run together without a break, and the short pieces of verse as chapter headings are just one paragraph. There are better products to show off your Kindle, and if you want this particular book, the Project Gutenberg edition is the way to go. You can download a Kindle-compatible text. It's a little more complicated than Amazon's delivery system, but the effort is worthwhile.
