A masterpiece of character depiction. An expose of the Mayfair Mussolini fans and war profiteers One of A. G. Macdonell's most biting books - a perceptive look at the rise of Nazism and its inevitable outcome. A novel, but with such prescience it could have been fact; illustrating the fondness for the right wing fascist movements among monied set
A. G. Macdonell, (1895-1941) was a journalist and satirical novelist. Without doubt his best-known work was England Their England, but the success of this overshadows his other books, many of which were classics in their own way. The Autobiography of a Cad must surely rank as one of the funniest books ever written and Lords and Masters is a cutting and hard-hitting satire with frightening prescience, foreseeing the Second World War as inevitable. His American trip in 1934 is amusingly related in A Visit to America, but his other non-fiction is also powerful and beautifully written, with his highly-regarded Napoleon and his Marshalls providing one of the best accounts of the Napoleonic Wars in one single volume.
