Because of this (and perhaps also because Mosley had known Ettie) there is a huge amount about her in the book. She was a beautiful and popular socialite who numbered many Edwardian politicians among her admirers - until she moved on to young men of her son's age.

Mosley, a highly regarded British novelist, examines the brief life of a sometime who was killed in the Great War at the age of 27, a few weeks after writing his celebrated poem ""Into Battle. In early manhood Julian made a stand of sorts against Ettie Grenfell's world of exalted, unexamined allegiances, mysterious rewards and punishments, gushy but self-protectively limited loves. At 21 Julian wrote a book-never published-of seven essays on the taboos and emptinesses of his society; but a brief, severe depression temporarily closed off all avenues of protest.

Provides excellent insight into the coming of the Great War from the perspective British aristocratic society and not the fumbling and stumbling of monarchs of Austria, Germany, and Russia, and British and French politicians.

Julian Grenfell's parents, Lord Willy Desborough and his fascinating wife Ettie, were at the very top of the power structure during the Victorian fin de siecle and the first twenty years of the next century. Ettie, the granddaughter of two earls, was the great society charmer of her day, and was the cynosure of every eye among the 'Souls,' the coterie of wealthy aristocrats who happened to run the British Empire at its very height (they numbered among them Lord Curzon, the great Indian Viceroy, the Wyndham sisters, the Asquiths, and Arthur Balfour). But the same qualities that lef to Ettie's fascination as a beauty also made her a very vexing mother for her children: this book is largely a study of her dark and troubled relations with her eldest son Julian Grenfell, who died in the First World War just after writing what became one of the most famous war lyrics ever written, "Into Battle." The novelist Nicholas Mosley, who is himself Lord Curzon's grandson, wrote this very penetrating 1976 biography that shows the dark underside of the Edwardian power structure that made possible the stupid sacrifice of talented young men like Julian and his brother Billy in WWI: the book reverberates with this terrible telos. Mosley quotes very extensively from the letters and diaries of the Grenfell/Desboroughs and the 'Souls' throughout the work. Although their society codewords and gushiness can be almost unbelievably cloying and even stupid (the men care only for hunting and for worshipping the women; the women for manipulating the men and each other), the exposure of this mindset is one of Mosley's major points. This book is a great find for anyone interested in the First World War, in the Edwardians, or in modernism in general.
