It was during the Great War, whilst serving in 1915 as both an artillery and medical officer in the Second Battle of Ypres, that he wrote his famous poem (In Flanders Fields). Set against a background of nearly half a century of history, (the author) brings alive in fascinating detail John McCrae and his world - amongst them Rudyard Kipling, Leo Amery, Sir Alexander Fleming, and Stephen Leacock; the threads that linked their lives; and the story of four people who, after the war, were instrumental in the events that led to poppies being manufactured and sold to raise funds." Book is in Fine condition. Dust jacket has very minor rubbing on rear panel, small area of laminate loss on front panel.
