1st edition (limited run 500). Memoir of an Oxford undergraduate during the WWII years - 1940-1942. From the back cover: "In those crucial war years from the end of 1940 to the beginning of 1942, Oxford undergraduates defiantly tried to carry on as normally as circumstances allowed. This chronicle of the life of one of them is dedicated to all those who made being at Oxford such fun but never survived to enjoy the memories. John Harper-Nelson's memoir is based on Trinity College but encompasses a wide range of interests and experience from rugby to rowing, jazz and the theatre, pubs and publications. To round up the story, the author has added a more modern postscript, noting the changes that have taken place over the half-century that has passed. his conclusions may be found to be surprising, reassuring or infuriating according to the reader's point of view."
