Evelyn Waugh : a biography by Christopher Sykes( Book )

38 editions published between 1975 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a comic writer, as a satirist, as a master of English prose Evelyn has been more admired than any other novelist of his generation. Recent readings from his war novels on the BBC have shown that this was no passing fashion. Yet few authors have inspired, have courted, so much antipathy and resentment by their public utterances and attitudes." --Publisher's description

The story of the establishment of the state of Israel from the Balfour Declaration of 1917 to the first seventeen years of the new state is a confused and often tragic one.

Mr Sykes, who lived in Palastine during the thirties, endeavours to tell the story fairly and sympathetically

"This sparkling curiosity was inspired by Ian Fleming, who in 1962 had the intriguing idea of asking eminent British writers to comment on the deadly sins for the London Sunday Times. The result is a colletive display of wit, erudition, and common sense, as each author essays his or her assigned vice."--Cover

The Day the guns fell silent by Christopher Sykes( Visual )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"November 11, 1918, marked the official end of the Great War--and the start of a peace so flawed that it guaranteed a second war of devastating proportions. This outstanding program documents the events of the war's last day, through archival footage, contemporary records, and poignant personal narratives, and traces the war's profound social and political impact on Great Britain. These accounts of death and bitter survival underscore the Pyrrhic nature of 'the war to end all wars, ' which cast a shadow of disillusionment across Europe and the entire 20th century."--Container
