Tolkien and the Great War


Revealing the horror and heroism Tolkien experienced in the First World War, author John Garth introduces the close friends who spurred Tolkien's mythology to life. He shows how the deaths of two comrades encouraged Tolkien to pursue the dream they had shared. He argues that Tolkien transformed the cataclysm of his generation while many of his contemporaries surrendered to disillusionment.
