" 'It seems that our generation at Balliol is doomed', Patrick Shaw Stewart wrote to Lady Desborough from Gallipoli. 'If I live throug h this war I shall be almost without friends'. He was in fact the last to die of the close-knit, brilliantly clever and engagingly vivacious group that included Raymond Asquith, Julian and Billy Grenfell, Edward Horner, Charles Lister, Ego a n d Y v o Charteris. Children of the Souls, the bright collection of late Victorian aristocrats, these young men were brought up together at Eton and Oxford; with such friends as Winston Churchill, Edward Marsh, Duff Cooper, John Buchan, Diana Co op er an d Ru p ert Brooke, they were becoming part of the Edwardian elite, moving from one fashionable ball or country house party to the next, meeting politicians and poets and beginning careers in the City, in the law and public service. In thi s m ovi n g g ro up po rtrait, which is based on many unpublished letters, both to and about each other, Jeanne MacKenzie tells of a happy youth and blighted manhood which epitomises the epic tragedy of the twentieth century. It is a story of ruin ous roma nt icis m w hos e i m plications stretch far beyond the brief lives of this 'lost generation'."
