He succeeded G. Chesterton as the writer of "Our Note Book", a regular feature in the Illustrated London News, and one of the liveliest spots in quality journalism. He kept the column up until his death aged 86, in , by which time he had contributed 2,, words to the magazine. But the academics did not like him, envying him his popularity, sales and social and financial success. I think he is due for a revival.

Years of Victory
The author, who is British, unabashedly heaps praises on the British people and government and has nothing but distaste for the French and their revolution. In fact, the hardest part I had to plow through was the first two chapters. The first was a long love fest with anything and everything British with the second is an stinging diatribe of both the ancien regime and the Revolution. As it was written in , you definitely get a strong vibe of the similarities that Britain faced in and in An overall good book but not recommended as unbiased read of the Anglo-French Republic wars but still a good read if you are an Anglophile or interested in seeing how current events can sometimes leak into works of history.
This is a truly brilliant history. It was written in an era of light footnoting etc. This is a well covered topic but never done better.
