Tolkien and the Great War

‘To be caught in youth by 1914 was no less hideous an experience than in 1939 … by 1918 all but one of my close friends were dead’

Definitive biography tracing the origins of Middle-earth to Tolkien’s youth and his experiences in the First World War.

Described by A.N.Wilson (Evening Standard 2003) as ‘very much the best book about J.R.R. Tolkien that has yet been written’.
