I nearly enjoyed this book, but there was something about the slightly irreverent writing style of the author that sometimes rankled a bit. Just the odd quip here and there ruined what was a fairly informative book. I have read a lot of architectural history books on similar subjects and found this didn't quite engage me as well. It was OK.

Absolutely marvellous.

Striking stories about the requisitioned houses for the war. A sad but very interesting testemony of these historic facts.
Good and very well chosen photographs.
I'm fully satisfied with the product.

A fascinating book and companion to the author's "Felling The Ancient Oaks". Each of the selected houses has a different story to tell and the accompanying photographs are exceptional.

A most readable and informative book that deals with the fate of many of our finest houses who gave their all for their country

A very dark period in Country House history and especially what came after! Interesting reading with lots if good pictures - so sad how many houses were ruined and later demolished...
