About the Author

Herbert Warner Allen (1881-1968) was a journalist and editor, with a talent for languages and a writer on multiple subjects including his wartime exploits, wine, detective novels (which are still in print, his sleuth being the wine expert, Mr William Clerihew), and on spirituality. In 1914 Warner was an official representative of the British press at the French front. In 1917 he was with the British in Italy and in 1918 he transferred to the American expeditionary force in France, and accompanied it as it occupied Germany. Harry Eyres is a well-known theater and wine critic, and writes for Country Life today.
