This book begins with a survey of R. F. Delderfield's knowledge of Napoleonic history as revealed in his three Napoleonic-era novels. Two commentaries follow: the first on English attitudes and actions in a London suburb during the Interbellum (1918-1939) in his novels "The Dreaming Suburb" and "The Avenue Goes to War", and the second on his Craddock trilogy, set in Devonshire, dramatizing the English experience from the Boer War until the late 1960s.
Emeritus Professor of English at California State University Chico, Victor J. Lams has written two books on Richardson's Clarissa, three on John Henry Newman's religious rhetoric, and two studies of Robertson Davies' novels, all published by Peter Lang.
