This book portrays the lives of an elite group of English intellectuals who died fighting in the First World War. The 'Children of the Souls' included Raymond Asquith, Julian and Billy Grenfell, Edward Horner, Charles Lister, Ego and Yvo Charteris, and Patrick Shaw Stewart. In this moving group portrait, which is based on unpublished letters both from and about them, Jeanne MacKenzie tells of a happy youth and blighted manhood which epitomises the epic tragedy of the twentieth century.
