Adrian Bell is Martin's father - and you can see where he got his journalistic talent from! This book is a gem and it was a master stroke to give all serving members of the armed forces a copy before going to war. It is an account of what life in England was all about and worthwhile fighting for. Even today, having read this book I would go out and fight for the values and good British way of life depicted in this wonderful book. I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is an excellent factual book about England between the two World Wars. It relates the real life story of those running and working on the land. A taste of village life and the very begining of the automation that would see the demise of the working horse.
I fully endorse the forward written by the author's well known son, Martin Bell news correspondent and later a trustworthy MP.
A book not to be missed that should be added to the 100 books to be read in a lifetime. I will now read the other works of the author.
If you enjoyed 'War Horse' you will enjoy this amble through the tranquil English Countryside. A thoroughly good read, highly recommended.

It's funny. it's interesting - a historical window on pre-war rural England beautifully observed characters including the author as a young man from London who finds himself in the role of apprentice farmer in rural Suffolk because his father thinks it a 'good idea' and preferable to university. A good read.

I loved this book and look forward to reading the other two in the trilogy. It reminds me of my childhood in the Lake District in the 1950s when farming was so different to how it is now. Beautifully written and a surprisingly easy read. Just lovely.

This is without doubt the best book I have ever read about rural England and living between the two world wars living " in a land of lost content "
