The selected letters by T. E Lawrence( Book )
5 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Edward Thomas, professional author, essayist, and critic, was thirty-nine when he was killed in the Arras offensive on Easter Day, 1917. Six months later his first collection of poems was published and his literary reputation secured. These Selected Letters present a uniquely vivid portrait of Thomas's life, from his time as an undergraduate at Oxford through to his final days at the Front. Chosen from more than 2,000 extant letters from Thomas to his family and literary friends - including Robert Frost, Walter de la Mare, and Eleanor Farjeon - the selection traces his struggle to establish himself as a writer, his long and successful fight against depression, and, amid the strain of marriage which sometimes brought much agony, the strength of his love for his wife Helen. The letters, which formed a key source for R. George Thomas's highly praised biography of the poet, help substantiate the editor's belief that despite Thomas's immense prose output and the late flowering of his verse in 1914-1916, the name and nature of poetry was Edward Thomas's dominant lifelong concern

T.E. Lawrence by Malcolm Brown( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and Portuguese and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This new biography, by a well-known authority on Lawrence, is part fast-moving adventure story, part modern morality tale, and places special emphasis on the years of the desert war - the period that both made Lawrence and broke him. It also shows how the once haloed figure surrounded by hero-worship has increasingly come to be seen as a man of our time, to whom countless people can relate, not because he acquired what we now call celebrity status, but because he was prepared to relinquish it." "Illustrated with portraits, photographs, documents, letters in Lawrence's hand and extracts from his writings, Historic Lives: T.E. Lawrence presents a compelling portrait of a remarkable man."--Jacket

Christmas Truce : the western front December 1914 by Malcolm Brown( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a conflict infamous for its horror and brutality, enemy shook hands with enemy. Soldiers shared rations, exchanged souvenirs, and even played football on a frost-covered No Mans Land. This Christmas truce was not just a brief interlude in one place. The ceasefire between the trenches extended over at least two-thirds of the British line and there were similar ceasefires in the French and Belgian sectors of the Western Front. In some areas the peaceable mood lingered well into 1915. But behind the festive cheer and acceptance of shared experience, the inevitable renewal of hostilities loomed large. Malcolm Brown and Shirley Seaton have combed war diaries, talked to participants and consulted a wide range of contemporary letters, diaries and newspapers to produce this unique account
