Very interesting to get a deeper look into the great War and it's effect on JRR. Very much enjoyed this book!
Tolkien and the Great War sheds new light on the influence of the Great War on Tolkiens thinking and writing through an astonishing amount of research.
Especially the comparison of him to the well known Great War Poets is enlightening.
The reader does an amazing job at delivering the often harrowing story of the expierience of an entire generation.
The only complaint is the butchering of the pronounciation of german names.
Well written, well documented and the narration, by the author (with supposedly no training in this craft) is quite excellent.
During the listening, old pangs of nostalgia felt when I first read Tolkien came up.
Very well done.
