Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 20 years ago. This book (or shall I say this masterpiece) deserves to be read for its intelligence and elegance of style. Annan is not only a scholar of immense erudition (this species, contrary to many people think, is far from rare), he is a writer whose profundity of insight and wealth of wit are unrivalled except by a very few.

Noel Annan in his study of 20th-century Britain ( Our Age: The Generation that Made Post-War Britain, HarperCollins), argues that: The shock of the losses stunned the British; and the lesion of trench warfare and its toll never healed. Lord Annan argues that the reaction of the post-war generation was to seek refuge in subversive irony and humour. Perhaps it is significant that Lady Thatcher represented the first generation to reach national leadership which had no personal memory of the first world war. Harold Macmillan, a prime minister of the 1960s who was famous for his foppish manners and wry wit, was a veteran of 1914-18, and had seen many of his contemporaries killed.
