The Strange Case Of The Angels Of Mons . World War I began disastrously for the British when the Germans routed them at Mons, Belgium, on August 23 and 24, 1914. Less than a week later the Anglo-Welsh writer Arthur Machen fictionalized this encounter in a newspaper story, claiming that the English were saved by the appearance of angelic bowmen sent by St. George. But his fiction became accepted as fact. The believers--notables G.K. Chesterton, Arthur Conan Doyle and C.S. Lewis, along with almost forgotten figures like Harold Begbie, Phyllis Campbell and T.W.H. Crosland--wrote pamphlets, testimonies and poems, performed music and created motion pictures attesting to the existence of the guardian angels. This history of the Angels of Mons controversy for the first time collects and annotates Machen's work and the responses it inspired, most of which have not been available since their publication a century ago. Also reprinted for the first time are several of Machen's responses to the believers, including "The Angels of Mons: Absolutely My Last Word on the Subject" and "The Return of the Angels: This Time They Are at Ypres."

Angel Of Mons. "Ben’s father is in prison and his mum, a former child genius, is barely hanging on to her sanity. When Ben and his classmates are nearly killed in a coach crash in Belgium, Ben starts to experience flashbacks: visitations to the brutal start of World War 1 and the uncertain world of Corporal Sam Lyle. Is Ben going mad too, like his mum, or is there another reason why he finds himself in a war zone in 1914? Who is the spectral figure that haunts both the boy and the soldier? Do angels exist? What people are saying... 'This is a stunning story: fast moving, fiercely realistic yet engaging with ghosts and an angel. It's alive with native wit and, underpinned by the conflict of courage and cowardice, loyalty and bullying, it's genuinely moving. Very many school groups visit the battlefields of WWI, and Angel of Mons (with its excellent notes at the end) should be essential reading for them all.' - Kevin Crossley-Holland, Author and President of the School Library " ‘This could be something very special’ The Literary Consultancy

Raiffe And The Angels Of Mons. “Gentleman, earlier today Germany invaded Belgium. This country has a treaty with Belgium, but their neutrality provided for under this has been violated. As a consequence, as from tonight, Britain is officially at war with Germany.” Raiffe and the Angels of Mons, set in the summer of 1914, is based loosely around a British cavalry regiment, the 5th Hussars, and in particular a young officer, Lieutenant Sebastian Raiffe. The story opens on a polo match on a summer’s day. There have been rumblings of disquiet over affairs in Europe since the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, but the cavalry officers are intent on enjoying the last of the summer... until everything changes. The men are forced into action, and we follow Raiffe, his friend Archie Alexander and his colleagues, from their carefree pre-war existence to the mobilisation of the British Expeditionary Force and the regiment’s arrival in France as war is declared against Germany. Raiffe finds himself amidst the carnage of modern warfare and is one of the first British officers to taste action. He is involved in the fighting at Mons, Nery, the Marne and the Aisne. Bleak though the fighting is, there are moments of humour and self-sacrifice, and Raiffe experiences wartime Paris, tastes the exhilaration of flying and finds love. Raiffe and the Angels of Mons is a gripping wartime novel, at times harrowing and at others uplifting, that will appeal particularly to fans of military history fiction.

The Great War And Medieval Memory. A genuinely comparative study of the cultural impact of the Great War on British and German societies in the first half of the twentieth century. Taking public commemorations as its focus, this book unravels the British and German search for historical continuity and meaning in the shadow of an unprecedented human catastrophe. In both countries, the survivors of the Great War pictured the conflict as the 'Last Crusade' and sought consolation in imagery that connected the soldiers of the age of total war with the knights of the Middle Ages. Stefan Goebel shows that medievalism as a mode of war commemoration transcended national and cultural boundaries. This is an invaluable contribution to the burgeoning study of cultural memory and collective remembrance which will appeal to researchers and students in the history of the First World War, social and cultural history of warfare and medieval studies.
