James Grant : British battles on land and sea

MS annotations incl. v.1 p.534: "A ludicrous map, palpably incorrect at every point. Malplaquet is on the wrong side of the French line, and the attack on the French left flank in the wood is not represented at all, though the chief feature of the day." P. 575 next to the text "the artifices and baseness of William III", Sir George writes: "Fool read thy Macaulay".

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: George Otto Trevelyan      Print: Book

  

James Grant : The Romance of War: Or, the Highlanders in Spain

'Coldish this morning, with the tiny oil-stove and no boiler fire till after dark. I have been reading The Romance of War! and am now finishing this [i.e., the diary entry] before going back to the mess for lunch.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Ernest William Hornung      Print: Book

  

James Grant : The Romance of War: Or, the Highlanders in Spain

'I have had a pleasant, lazy morning reading old James Grant's Romance of War!. I expect the romance was always under one's own cap and tunic.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Ernest William Hornung      Print: Book
